Statistical Applets: Normal Approximation to Binomial Distributions

The Central Limit Theorem says that as n increases, the binomial distribution with n trials and probability p of success gets closer and closer to a normal distribution. That is, the binomial probability of any event gets closer and closer to the normal probability of the same event. The normal distribution has the same mean μ = np and standard deviation  as the binomial distribution.
