expression by using the expression on the right hand side and visa versa.

to the second formula, one uses all the rules of summation.

the curve at which the
shape of the curve changes from concave to convex.

## If a variable were normally distributed such as

Student heights with

= 4 inches
53 61
If heights are normally distributed, then about two-thirds of the students will fall
within this range. Recall that 2/3 of the observations fall within one standard
deviation of the mean, if the variable is normally distributed.
This is the picture of the distribution of sample means, they are normally distributed
about , with standard deviation /

Random variable
If distribution follows a binomial then this is the formula
n!
(n x)! x!

pxqn- x

n = # of trials
P = probability of success on any single trail
q = (1 P)
X = specific # of successes
For Example
n = 5, this is the number of trials
P = 2/6 =1/3
X=2
5! (1/3)2 (2/3)2
3! 2!

In order for us to recognize that a problem can be modeled by the binomial
theorem, we must have n independent trials with only 2 relevant outcomes per
trial. It is also the case that the binomial distribution becomes normally distributed
if certain conditions are met np> 5 and nq>5. In the following example the
conditions for the normal distribution would be met.

n= 400
P=
And therefore np=200 (the mean)
The variance is equal to npq or
400 = 100, and the standard
Deviation would equal , = 10, = 100

Central Limit Theorem Sample means are normally distributed. A small sample used to
obtain means will generate sample means that are normally distributed, then if the distribution of
the original variable is non symmetric, a larger size sample to gather the means will be necessary
before the distribution of sample means become normal.

Notice that with a sample size of only two, the distribution of sample means can be
approximated by the normal distribution. That is to say, sample means quickly take on the shape
of the normal even when the sample size is very small. Notice, however, that the original
distribution of the variable was symmetrical. If the underlying distribution is highly skewed, then
it would take a much larger sample size for the distribution of sample means to become normal.
