on this.9. All continuous random variables are normally distributed.
Continuousrandom variables can be highly skewed and non-normal. A normal randomvariable is a popular example of a continuous random variable, but a continuousr.v. need not be normal.10. The mean of a standard normal distribution is always equal to 1.
Itsmean is zero and variance (or std deviation) equal to 1.11. Even if the sample size is more than 1000, we cannot always use the normalapproximation to binomial.
For example if p is .001 then np would be only 1even if sample size is 1000.12. For a binomial probability experiment, with n=150 and p=.1, we cannot usethe normal approximation to the binomial distribution without continuitycorrection.
