Suppose you collect a random sample of 820 residents of the U.S. over the age of 25, asking each whether or not they have a bachelor’s degree. Note that there are only twb possible answers to the question, bachelor’s degree or not. Thus each trial has only. two possible outcomes. Furthermore, there are a fixed number of trials (11 = 820), and the probability of success remains constant from trial to trial (p a 0.27). Finally, since the data is from a random sample and the sample is less than 10% of the entire population (all U.S. residents over the age of 25), it’s reasonable to conclude that individual responses are independent of each other. . Thus, this scenario can be modeled with a Binomial distribution: X ~ B(820, 0.27) ' where a success is defined as a U.S. resident over age 25 who has a bachelor’s degree A. Use the normal approximation to the binomial (NAB) to calculate the probability that, in any random 7 - size n=820, you would find more than 250 with a bachelor’s degree.
