Problem 95E

Suppose that X is a binomial random variable with n =200 and p=0.4 Approximate the following probabilities:

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 4</p>

Given that X is a binomial random variable with n=200 and p=0.4

The approximation is good for

Here np=200(0.4)=80

And nq=200(1-0.4)=120

To approximate a binomial probability with normal distribution ,a continuity correction will apply that is

And

Now mean ()=np

=80

And standard deviation ()=

=

=6.93

Step 2 of 4</p>

a) We have to find

Now we need to find

Now find

=(70.5-80)/6.93

= -1.37

From the standard normal tables find  =0.08534

Hence =0.08534

Step 2 of 4</p>

b) We have to find

Now =

=

For 70.5, Z = -1.37

For 89.5,

=(89.5-80)/6.93

= 1.37

From the standard normal tables find

=0.91466 - 0.08534

=0.82932

Hence =0.82932

Step 4 of 4</p>

c) we have to find

Now =

For 79.5,

=(79.5-80)/6.93

= -0.072

For 89.5,

=(80.5-80)/6.93

= 0.072

From the standard normal tables find

=0.52790 - 0.47210

=0.0558

Hence =0.0558
