Suppose that n-48 seeds are planted and suppose that each seed has a probability p 75% of germinating. Let X be the number of seeds that germinate and use the Central Limit Theorem to estimate the probability P(35 < X < 40) that between 35 and 40 seeds germinate. Don't forget to use a continuity correction.
