request for normal distribution exercise
I am kindly asking for your help considering the following exercise.
The probability to win in a roulette game is 18/37. If someone bets 100 times, which is the probability to win at least 50 times?
(an excellent approximation to B(n, p) is given by the normal distribution, where μ=np and σ2=np(1-p))
P (50 ≤ x ≤ 100) = P ((50-μ)/σ ≤( x-μ )/σ≤( 100-μ)/σ) = Φ((100-μ)/σ) – Φ((50-μ)/σ)
[ where μ=np, σ2=np(1-p), n=100, p=18/37 ]
then we use the normal distribution table
