The Normal Approximation. To the Binomial Distribution. Recall: Binomial Distributions have: 1. Fixed number of trials 2. Independent Outcomes 3. Exactly two outcomes 4. Same probabilities for each trial. Binomial Distributions.
The Normal Approximation
To the Binomial Distribution
A correction for continuity may be used .
-a correction employed when a continuous distribution is used to approximate a discrete distribution.
-Ex. P(X) = 8 would imply having to find P(7.5<X<8.5)
0.9656 – 0.9429 = 0.0227 So 2.27% read the paper and drive
