2015-12-09 04:18:39 -0600 asked a question Sage Math Cloud Plotting Error, ValueError: cannot convert x to int

I'm using SageMathCloud to compute a summation

sum([.25^(100-i) * .75^(i) * binomial(100,i) for i in range(0, 63)])

0.00274614363169321

but am not able to plot it

plot(sum([.25^(100-i) * .75^(i) * binomial(100,i) for i in range(0, x)]),(x,1,63))

Error in lines 1-1
Traceback (most recent call last):

    raise ValueError("cannot convert %s to int" % self)
ValueError: cannot convert x to int

What am I doing wrong here?
