**MathGuru**, Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 6:31pmUse the normal approximation to the binomial distribution.

First find mean and standard deviation.

mean = np = (600)(.21) = ?

standard deviation = √npq = √(600)(.21)(.79) = ?

Note: q = 1 - p

I'll let you finish the calculations.

Next take .24 times 600. Use that value for x in the z-score equation:

z = (x - mean)/sd

Once you calculate the z-score, look at a z-table to determine the probability. Remember that the problem is asking "more than" when you check the table.

I hope this will help get you started.
