Here are some binomial distributions with their normal approximations superimposed. 52 n = 15, p = 0.5 n = 30, p = 0.3 Example 7 Coin Flips (a) If you flip a fair coin 100 times, what is the probability of getting more than 55 heads or fewer than 45 heads? (b) What number of heads (out of 100) would make you suspect that the coin is not fair? Solution (a) We are asking for P(X<45 or X>55) = 1 - P(45 ≤ X ≤ 55). We co...
