    If np ≥ 5 and nq ≥ 5 estimate P (fewer than 2) with n= 13 and p= 0.4 by using the normal distribution as an approximation to the binomial distribution if np < 5 or nq <5 then state that the normal approximation is not suitable.

    Select the correct choice below and if necessary fill in the answer box to complete our choice.
