Binomial distribution
Assume a binomial probability distribution has p=0.60 and n= 200

a. What is the mean and standard deviation?
Mean =np=200*0.60=120
Variance =np(1-p)=48
Standard deviation = = =6.928
b. Is this a situation in which binomial probabilities can be approximated by the normal probability distribution? Explain
The Normal distribution can be used to approximate Binomial probabilities when n is large and p is ...
