    Statistics: when is N large?

    Hello! I'm having a little difficulty trying to discern when n is considered large. I keep coming across formulae that end with a reference to n large (attached). How do I know when N is large, and how does that change the way I solve the question?

    I'm used to different notation, but I think n should be 30 or more.
