Question

Explain how to decide when a normal distribution can be used to approximate a binomial distribution.

Choose the correct answer below.

A.

If

npgreater than or equals?5

and

nqgreater than or equals??5,

the normal distribution can be used.

B.

If

npnot equals?5

and

nqnot equals??5,

the normal distribution can be used.

C.

If

npless than<5

and

nqless than<?5,

the normal distribution can be used.

D.

If

npgreater than>0

and

nqgreater than>?0,

the normal distribution can be used.

Answer #1

solution=

Normal distribution can be used to approximate the binomial
distribution of sample proportions (i.e., np ? 5 and nq ? 5).

Notation:

p= proportion of success in population

pˆ=x/n= proportion of success in sample of size n

qˆ=1?pˆ= proportion of failure in sample of size n

**correct option is**

**A.If np (greater than or equals)?5 and nq(greater than
or equals)??5, the normal distribution can be used.**

np (greater than or equals)?5 and nq(greater than or equals)??5, the normal distribution can be used.

Decide whether you can use the normal distribution to
approximate the binomial distribution. If you can, use the normal
distribution to approximate the indicated probabilities and sketch
their graphs. If you cannot, explain why and use the binomial
distribution to find the indicated probabilities. A survey of
adults found that 79% of those who text on cell phones receive
spam or unwanted messages. You randomly select 100 adults who text
on cell phones. Complete parts (a) through (d).

Compute P(X) using the binomial probability formula. Then
determine whether the normal distribution can be used to estimate
this probability. If so, approximate P(X) using the normal
distribution and compare the result with the exact probability.
