Checking Requirements Common tests such as the SAT, ACT, Law School Admission test (LSAT), and Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) use multiple choice test questions, each with possible answers of a, b, c, d, e, and each question has only one correct answer. We want to find the probability of getting at least 25 correct answers for someone who makes random guesses for answers to a block of 100 questions. If we plan to use the methods of this section with a normal distribution used to approximate a binomial distribution, are the necessary requirements satisfied? Explain.
