What is normal binomial distribution?

There is no such thing. The Normal (or Gaussian) and Binomial are two distributions.


For the normal distribution does it always require a continuity correction?

Use the continuity correction when using the normal distribution to approximate a binomial distribution to take into account the binomial is a discrete distribution and the normal distribution is continuous.


Why is it necessary to use a continuity correction when using a normal distribution to approximate a binomial distribution?

It is necessary to use a continuity correction when using a normal distribution to approximate a binomial distribution because the normal distribution contains real observations, while the binomial distribution contains integer observations.

Comparision between binomial plus normal plus hypergeometric distribution?

The binomial distribution is a discrete probability distribution which describes the number of successes in a sequence of draws from a finite population, with replacement. The hypergeometric distribution is similar except that it deals with draws without replacement. For sufficiently large populations the Normal distribution is a good approximation for both.


How the symmetric distribution is always normal?

The statement is false. The binomial distribution (discrete) or uniform distribution (discrete or continuous) are symmetrical but they are not normal. There are others.


Are all symmetric distribution are normal?

No. The binomial distribution (discrete) or uniform distribution (discrete or continuous) are symmetrical but they are not normal. There are others.


When can a binomial situation be approxiamted with a normal distribution?

The binomial distribution can be approximated with a normal distribution when np > 5 and np(1-p) > 5 where p is the proportion (probability) of success of an event and n is the total number of independent trials.


Can normal distribution be used if the data is not normal?

You can use a normal distribution to approximate a binomial distribution if conditions are met such as n*p and n*q is > or = to 5 & n >30.

Why the normal distribution can be used as an approximation to the binomial distribution?

The central limit theorem basically states that for any distribution, the distribution of the sample means approaches a normal distribution as the sample size gets larger and larger. This allows us to use the normal distribution as an approximation to binomial, as long as the number of trials times the probability of success is greater than or equal to 5 and if you use the normal distribution as an approximation, you apply the continuity correction factor.
