## Answers ( )

The answers to the questions are;

A) P(X) where x = 12 is equal to 3.55 ×10⁻²

B) P(x) using the normal distribution is given by the probability distribution function and is equal to 3.453 ×10⁻²

C) The calculated probabilities of P(x=12) using the binomial probability formula and the probability distribution function differ by 9.7×10⁻⁴

D) The normal distribution be used to approximate this probability because     a. because np(1-p) %u2265 ⇒ np(1-p) ≥ 10

E) c. the value of fi represents the expected proportion of observation less than or equal to the ith data value.

Step-by-step explanation:

To solve the question, we note that

n = 58

p = 0.3

x = 12

Here we have n·p = 17.4 and n·q = 40.6 both ≥ 5 that is the normal distribution can be used to estimate the probability

A) We are to use the binomial probability formula to find P(X)

Where x = 12, we have P(12) = ₅₈C₁₂×0.3¹²×0.7⁴⁶

= 891794789340×0.000000531441×7.49×10⁻⁸ = 3.55 ×10⁻²

B) Using the standard distribution table we have

the z score for x = 12 given as = -1.55

From the normal distribution table, we have the probability that value is below 12 = .06057 while the normal probability distribution function which gives the probability of a number being 12 is given by

where:

σ = Standard deviation =

μ = Sample mean = n·p = 58×0.3 =17.4

Therefore the probability density function is

C)  The probabilities differ by 3.55 ×10⁻² –  3.453 ×10⁻² =  9.7×10⁻⁴

D) The normal distribution be used to approximate this probability because     n·p and n·p·(n-p) ≥ 5

E)   f represents the area under the curve towards left of the ith data observed in a normally distributed population.

Therefore, the value of fi represents the expected proportion of observation less than or equal to the ith data value
