Suppose a simple random sample of size
is obtained from a population whose size is
Upper N equals 15 comma 000N=15,000
and whose population proportion with a specified characteristic is
p equals 0.4 .p=0.4.
Complete parts ​(a) through​ (c)
below.
​(a) Describe the sampling distribution of
ModifyingAbove p with caretp.
Choose the phrase that best describes the shape of the sampling distribution below.

A.
Approximately normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis greater than or equals 10.np(1−p)≥10.

B.
Not normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis less than 10.np(1−p)<10.

C.
Approximately normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis less than 10.np(1−p)<10.

D.
Not normal because
n less than or equals 0.05 Upper Nn≤0.05N
and np left parenthesis 1 minus p right parenthesis greater than or equals 10.np(1−p)≥10.

Step 1

It is given that n is 75, N is 15,000 and p is 0.4.

Step 2

In general, the sampling distribution is normal if n is less than or equal t...
