Question

According to a general rule, the binomial probability distribution has a bell shape when

n*p*(1-p) = or > 10.

**Answer the
following.**

(a) For a binomial experiment with a probability of success of .60, what is the smallest sample size “n”

needed so that the binomial distribution has a bell shape? Round to the nearest whole number.

(b) Using the value for the sample size you found above, what is the mean and standard deviation of the binomial distribution.

(c) Given the mean and standard deviation you found, would a value of 35 for the random variable “x” be unusual? Why?

Answer #1

Binomial normal distribution calculations.

(a) sample size **42**

(b) Mean = **25.2**

Standard deviation = **3.175**

(c) random variable 35 is **unusual.**

Part 1-
A binomial distribution has mean or expected value μ, where μ =
np. What will be the expected value of number of left-handed people
in a sample of 200, if the probability of one of them being
left-handed is 22%?
Part 2-
A binomial distribution has a standard deviation of σ, where
where σ = npq and where n is sample size, p is probability of
success and q is the probability of failure. (Whatever is asked
