Basic Computation:\(\hat{p}\) Distribution Suppose we have a binomial experiment in which success is defined to be a particular quality or attribute that interests us.
(a) Suppose \(n = 33\) and \(p = 0.21\). Can we approximate the \(\hat{p}\)
distribution by a normal distribution? Why? What are the values of \(\mu_{\hat{p}}\) and \(\sigma_ {\hat{p}}\).?

We have binomial experiment with \(n = 33\) and \(p = 0.21\)
\(np = 33(0.21)\)
\(np = 6.93\)
\(nq = 33(1 — 0.21)\)
\(nq = 26.07\)
Since both the values np and ng are greater than 5, hence, we can approximate the \(\hat{p}\) distribution by a normal distribution.
The formula for the mean of the hat p distribution is \(\mu_{\hat{p}} = \hat{p}\).
\(\mu_{\hat{p}} = 0.21\)
The formula for the standard error of the normal approximation to the \(\hat{p}\) distribution is
\(\sigma_{\hat{p}} = \sqrt{\frac{pq}{n}}\)
\(\sigma_{\hat{p}} = \sqrt{\frac{0.21(1-0.21)}{33}}\)
\(\sigma_{\hat{p}} = 0.071\)
