a-Find the probability distribution for x, the number of people in the sample of three who would prefer Jay Leno.

b-What is the probability that exactly one of the three would prefer Jay Leno?

c-What are the population mean and standard deviation for the random variable x?

**MathGuru**, Thursday, September 30, 2010 at 12:06pmUse a normal approximation to the binomial distribution.

Your values are the following:

p = .52, q = 1 - p = .48, x = 1, and n = 3

Find mean and standard deviation.

mean = np = (3)(.52) = ?

sd = √npq = √(3)(.52)(.48) = ?

I'll let you finish the calculations.

Once you have the mean and standard deviation, use z-scores and z-table to find probability.

P(0.5 < x < 1.5) =

P[(0.5 - mean)/sd] < z < [(1.5 - mean)/sd]

Once you have the two z-scores (substitute the mean and sd calculated), find the difference between the two using a z-table. This will be your probability.

I hope this will help get you started.
