12. Determine whether the given procedure results in a binomial distribution. If not, state the reason why: Rolling a single die 26 times, keeping track of the "fives" rolled. (Points : 6) Not binomial: the trials are not independent. Not binomial: there are too many trials. Not binomial: there are more than two categories for each trial. Procedure results in a binomial distribution.
