A football team scores 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a defeat. The probability of winning each game is 0.58 and the probability of a draw is 0.24. Assume that results of matches are independent of one another.
Let X29 represent the number of points scored in the first 29 matches of the season. Use a Normal approximation to calculate the largest integer n such that P(X29 ≥ n) is at least 95% using a continuity corretcion anyone any ideas thnx?
