 Question 598197: Consider a binomial experiment with 20 trials and probability 0.45 on a single trial. Use an approximatation to the normal distribution to find the probability of exactly 10 successes. Round your answer to the thousandths place. Answer by stanbon(60772)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Consider a binomial experiment with 20 trials and probability 0.45 on a single trial. Use an approximatation to the normal distribution to find the probability of exactly 10 successes. Round your answer to the thousandths place. --- u = np = 20*0.45 = 9 s = sqrt(npq) = sqrt(9*0.55) = 2.22 ----- z(9.5) = (9.5-9)/[2.22/sqrt(20) = 1.007 z(10.5) = (10.5-9)/[2.22/sqrt(20)] = 3.0217 ----------- P(x = 10) ~ P(1.007< z < 3.0217) = 0.1557 =========================================== Cheers, Stan H.
