This video draws the lessons on the normal distribution to a close. I take a look at how, for large values of n, we can use the normal distribution to approximate the binomial distribution. I open by recapping the work we have done with the Binomial Distribution and how, for high values of n we can see the curve of the Binomial Distribution and Normal Distribution are almost identical. There are a number of examples to show how we can use the theory.
