Step 1

Given,

Y follows binomial distributon with n = 20, pi = 0.5.

Step 2

Part a). Compute the exact probabilities and corresponding normal approximations for y < 5.

Step 3

Part b). The normal approximation can be improved slightly by taking P(y ≤ 4.5). Why should this help? Compare your results.

This step as known as continuity correction, we use it when continuous probability distribution is being used to approximate a Discrete Probability Distribution. For Example like the same that we are...
