The normal curve is a good approximation to the binomial distribution, but it requires the condition that np and nq should be greater than 5. Only when the condition for normal approximation to the binomial distribution is satisfied, the confidence interval for proportion p using a normal distribution can be found.
The confidence interval for proportion pis as follows:
CI=p±za2p1pn

The manager of the store in the preceding exercise calculated the residual for each point in the scatterplot and made a dotplot of the residuals.
The distribution of residuals is roughly Normal with a mean of $0 and standard deviation of $22.92.
