When using normal approximation for a binomial, if the sample size is 85, and the probability of a success is 45%, find the mean and the stardard deviation.

The formula for standard deviation is sqrt([sample size][probability of success](1-[probability of success])

sqrt (85*0.45)(1-0.45)= 21.0375

standard deviation=4.58

mean= sample size * success

mean= 85*0.45= 38.25
