# Binomial Approximation Applet (SageMath)

Below is the applet that demonstrates a visualization of the two approximations of the Binomial distribution, which should open automatically using

Sage Cell.

The Binomial distribution is displayed in

**red**, and you can select which distribution to approximate it with via the overlay button.

The Poisson distribution (with mean = n*p) will be overlayed in

**blue**, while the Normal distribution (with mean = n*p and variance = n*p*(1-p)) will be overlayed in

**green**.

Try playing around with the sliders -- Under what conditions do we have a good approximation?
