Thanks Jim. I think my previous posting wasn't clear enough. What I try to do is to compute the probability: f(2,1,3; 2/9, 1/6, 11/18, 6). (If we compute by hand, it is 0.1127). What is the R funtion for doing that?

I know for binomial tests, there is a function called binom.test. But for multinomial events, is there a similar function in R?

thanks
Johnny

?sample

sample(1:3, 6, TRUE, prob=c(2/9, 1/6, 11/18))

Hi All,

What is the R function for computing multinomial distribution, e.g. f(2,1,3; 2/9, 1/6, 11/18, 6)?

That is, a total of 6 trials, event 1's p1=2/9, x1=2, event 2's p2=1/6, x2=1, and event 3's p3=11/18, x3=3.

thanks,
Johnny
