**The Normal Probability Distribution**

**In This Chapter**

- Examining the properties of a normal probability distribution
- Using the standard normal table to calculate probabilities of a normal random variable
- Using Excel to calculate normal probabilities
- Using the normal distribution as an approximation to the binomial distribution

Now let’s take on a new challenge: continuous random variables and a continuous probability distribution known as the normal distribution. Remember that in Chapter 8 we defined a continuous random variable as one that can assume any numerical value within an interval as a result of measuring the outcome of an ...
