    Normal Model...stats

    If somthing doesnt work for the normal model, for example, pq is less than 10.

    ya know that rule? Well, i got one thats less than 10, and the next questions are asking what the SD and mean are, and things like that.

    Are they tricking me...should I just say..it wont work?

    More infornmation is needed for us to be able to make sense of your question.

    If you are talking about the normal approximation to the binomial or Poisson
    distributions then they still have means and standard deviations independent
    of the applicability of the normal approximation.
