(a) Suppose \(n = 100\) and \(p= 0.23\). Can we safely approximate the \(\hat{p}\) distribution by a normal distribution? Why?
Compute \(\mu_{\hat{p}}\) and \(\sigma_{\hat{p}}\).

We have binomial experiment with \(n = 100\) and \(p = 0.23\)
\(np = 100(0.23)\)
\(np = 23\)
\(nq = 100(1 — 0.23)\)
\(nq = 77\)
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 \(\mu_{\hat{p}} = \hat{p}\).
\(\mu_{\hat{p}} = 0.23\)
The formula for the standard error of the normal approximation to the \(\hat{p}\) distribution is
\(\sigma_{\hat{p}}=\sqrt{\frac{pq}{n}}\)
\(\sigma_{\hat{p}}=\sqrt{0.23\frac{1-0.23}{100}}\)
\(\sigma_{\hat{p}}=0.042\)

Assume that all the distributions are normal, average is always taken to be the arithmetic mean \(\bar{x}\) or \(\mu\). A college Physical Education Department offered an Advanced First Air course last semester. The scores on the comprehensive final exam were normally distributed, and the the z scores for some of the students are shown below:

Robert, 1.10

Juan, 1.70

Susan, -2.00

Joel, 0.00

Jan, -0.80

Linda,1.60

Which of these students scored below the mean?
