Np>5 and nq>5, estimate P(at least 11) with n=13 and p = 0.6 by using the normal distributions as an approximation to the binomial distribution. if \(\displaystyle{n}{p}{<}{5}{\quad\text{or}\quad}{n}{q}{<}{5}\) then state the normal approximation is not suitable.
p (at least 11) = ?

Step 1
Given n=12 and p=0.6.
Then,
Mean = np
\(\displaystyle={13}\times{0.6}\)
=7.8
Standard deviation \(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{n}{p}{\left({1}-{p}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{7.8}{\left({1}-{0.6}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{3.12}}}\)
=1.7663
Step 2
So,
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({X}\ge{11}\right)}={P}{\left(\frac{{{X}-{m}{e}{a}{n}}}{{{s}{\tan{{d}}}{a}{r}{d}{d}{e}{v}{i}{a}{t}{i}{o}{n}}}\ge\frac{{{11}-{m}{e}{a}{n}}}{{{s}{\tan{{d}}}{a}{r}{d}{d}{e}{v}{i}{a}{t}{i}{o}{n}}}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={P}{\left({Z}\ge\frac{{{11}-{7.8}}}{{{1.7663}}}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={P}{\left({Z}\ge{1.81}\right)}\) From the right tailed z - table.
=0.4649
Therefore, p (at least 11)=0.4649

When σ is unknown and the sample size is \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), there are tow methods for computing confidence intervals for μμ. Method 1: Use the Student's t distribution with d.f. = n - 1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method. Method 2: When \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σσ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σσ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student's t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n = 31, with sample mean x¯=45.2 and sample standard deviation s = 5.3. (c) Compare intervals for the two methods. Would you say that confidence intervals using a Student's t distribution are more conservative in the sense that they tend to be longer than intervals based on the standard normal distribution?

Use the following Normal Distribution table to calculate the area under the Normal Curve (Shaded area in the Figure) when \(Z=1.3\) and \(H=0.05\);
Assume that you do not have vales of the area beyond \(z=1.2\) in the table; i.e. you may need to use the extrapolation.
Check your calculated value and compare with the values in the table \([for\ z=1.3\ and\ H=0.05]\).
Calculate your percentage of error in the estimation.
How do I solve this problem using extrapolation?
