    u know in a binomial distribution it is said the probability for each trial is constant. Does that mean u cant say the results from trials are random. If that makes sense

    There can only be 2 outcomes.

    That kinda doesn't make sense, they HAVE to be random (i.e. the probability os sucess in one trial does not depend on the sucess of the previous one) for you to use Binomial.

    your looking at it from the wrong angle...

    The probability of success & failure remains constant. However, the chance of any event occuring is completly random from one trial to the next.
