Dear Statalisters,

My simple question is as follows:
Suppose I have two variables called "n" and "p" (2 observations each), say:
n        p
452        0.25
125        0.62

In this respect, my objective is to generate a third variable called, "c" as:

c ~ binomial (pi, n[i]), where i = 1,and 2(rows). The result
would look like this:

n        p        c
452        0.25        c1
125        0.62        c5

where:
c1 ~ bin (0.25, 452)
c5 ~ bin (0.62, 125)

Hence, is there a straighforward way to obtain these results with a simple
command? I will be extremely grateful for any help again.

Best regards,

Tiago
