### Why is a correction factor of x or - 0.5 needed?

The answer depends on the context. In probability or statistics, when using a continuous distribution as an approximation for a discrete distribution it is advisable to use 0.5 as a "continuity correction". This is to allow for the fact that the discrete variable usually cannot take values between integers. In other situations a correction may be applied to allow for measurement error.

### Can the Empirical Rule of probability be applied to the uniform probability distribution?

Yes, except that if you know that the distribution is uniform there is little point in using the empirical rule.

### Define p-value vs - z score?

The p-value is the probability of any event or the level of significance for any statistical test. The z-score is a transformation applied to a Random Variable with any Normal distribution to the Standard Normal distribution.

### When was Annals of Applied Probability created?

Annals of Applied Probability was created in 1991.

### When was Applied Probability Trust created?

Applied Probability Trust was created in 1964.

### Can normal distribution be applied on discrete data?

Yes. The normal distribution is used to approximate a binomial distribution when the sample size (n) times the probability of success (p), and the probability of failure (q) are both greater than or equal to 5. The mean of the normal approximation is n*p and the standard deviation is the square root of n*p*q.
