Central limit theorem - Normal Distribution and Z-Scores

Central limit theorem


The distribution of sampling means is normally distributed
\cdot μx=μ\mu_{\overline{x}}=\mu
\cdot σx=σn\sigma_{\overline{x}}=\frac{\sigma}{\sqrt{n}}

Central Limit Theorem:
Typically n30n \geq 30

    Comparing the Individual Z-Score to the Central Limit Theorem
    A population of cars has an average weight of 1350kg with a standard deviation of 200 kg. Assume that these weights are normally distributed.

    Increasing Sample Size
    At the University of British Columbia the average grade for the course “Mathematical Proofs” is 68%. This grade has a standard deviation of 15%.
