I am trying to understand what rbinom function does. Here is some sample code. Are both the invocations of bfunc effectively doing the same or I am missing the point? Thanks, Pieter bfunc <- function(n1,p1,sims) { c<-rbinom(sims,n1,p1) c } a=c() b=c() p1=.5 for (i in 1:10000){ a[i]=bfunc(30,p1,1) } b=bfunc(30,p1,10000)
