# Suppose a series of n independent trials can end in one of three possible outcomes. Let k1 and k2 denote the number of trials that result in outcomes 1 and 2, respectively. Let p1 and p2 denote the probabilities associated

Suppose a series of n independent trials can end in one of three possible outcomes. Let k1 and k2 denote the number of trials that result in outcomes 1 and 2, respectively. Let p1 and p2 denote the probabilities associated with outcomes 1 and 2. Generalize Theorem 3.2.1 to deduce a formula for the probability of getting k1 and k2 occurrences of outcomes 1 and 2, respectively.
