    Can someone check these/ tell me the rest as I can't seem to find them.

    Approx to normal

    - Binomial to normal
    np and nq >5

    -Poisson to normal
    lamda > 15 large n

    Approx to poisson

    - Binomial to poisson
    n large, p small

    - Normal to poisson
    I'm not too sure on this one. Is it when the mean and the variance are the same?

    Approx to binomial

    Not sure about these ones.

    Na. I thought there may be a rule for approximating to binomial
