Homework 2: Group 3: Adam Davidson, Cesar McFarlin, TJ Murphy, Adam Schatz 1. Suppose that a motel has 150 rooms and any room has a probability 0.35 of being rented any night. Use the Normal Approximation to obtain: a. Exact Binomial: Normal CDF (80, 60, ,52.5,5.84) = .5661 b. The Normal Approximation with correction (+/- 0.5): 49.5 - 57.5 = -.513 .3050 60.5 - 52.5 = 1.36 .9131 5.84 5.84 With corrections : .9131 - .3050 = 0.6081 c. The Approximation without the (+/- 0.5) corrections : 50 - 57.5 = -.423 .3372 60 - 52.5 = 1.28 .8997 5.84 5.84 Without corrections: .8997 - .3372 = 0.5625 2.
