Hi!
I would like to show graphically how a binomial distribution tends to become a normal distribution when one of its parameters becomes very large. I wrote something like this:

Manipulate[
ParametricPlot[
PDF[BinomialDistribution[t, 3.86733/t], x], {x, 0, 10},
PlotRange -> All], {t, 4, 3000, 1}]

Mathematica read these commands and gave me no error, however neither did it give me the distribution curve!
I thought that maybe it wouldn't calculate the distribution's values, and so I added the command Evaluate. Obviously it didn't work out.
Can somebody tell me where my mistake is?
Thanks in advance.
Susanna
