In the diagram,
is the number of trials
is the probability of success
From these, the following have been calculated:
Mean:
Standard Deviation:
You can compare the normal curve with the same mean and standard deviation by checking the box.
To see how the areas from the two distributions compare, adjust the lower and upper bounds and use the checkboxes to show the areas.
Note that the bounds of the normal curve have been adjusted 0.5 to the left and to the right to reach the boundary of the rectangles in the binomial distribution.
