Basic Computation:p^ Distribution Suppose we have a binomial experiment in which success is defined to be a particular quality or attribute that interests us.
(b) Suppose n=25 and p=0.15. Can we safely approximate the p^ distribution by a normal distribution? Why or why not?

We have binomial experiment with n=25 and p=0.15
np=25(0.15)
np=3.75
nq=25(10.15)
nq=21.25
Since both the values np and nq are not greater than 5, hence, we cannot approximate the p^ distribution by a normal distribution.
