Unformatted text preview: Problem 6: A biased coin with probability of heads equal to 0.6 is thrown 400 times. Assume that the outcome of each throw is independent. (a) Compute (i.e., ²nd the numerical value of) the probability of obtaining 220 heads or less. (b) Compare the probability in (a) with the CLT approximation and with an optimized Cherno± bound. Which works better? (c) Repeat (a)-(b) for the probability of obtaining 320 heads or more....
