What do you notice about the shape of the distribution of sample means?

Central Limit Theorem Suppose we take many random samples of size n for a variable with any distribution--- For large sample sizes: 1.The distribution of means will be approximately a normal distribution.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Mean:  =3.5 Standard Deviation:  =1.7078 How does the mean of the sample means compare to the mean of the population? Remember for 250 trials: When n=5,  x=3.504 When n=10,  x=3.48 When n=20,  x=3.487 How does the mean of the sample means compare to the mean of the population?

Central Limit Theorem Suppose we take many random samples of size n for a variable with any distribution--- For large sample sizes: 1.The distribution of means will be approximately a normal distribution. 2.The mean of the distribution of means approaches the population mean, .

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Mean:  =3.5 Standard Deviation:  =1.7078 How does the standard deviation of the sample means compare to the standard deviation of the population? Remember for 250 trials: When n=5, s=.7826 When n=10, s=.5321 When n=20, s=.4155 How does the standard deviation of the sample means compare to the standard deviation of the population?

Cost of owning a dog Suppose that the average yearly cost per household of owning dog is \$186.80 with a standard deviation of \$32. Assume many samples of size n are taken from a large population of dog owners and the mean cost is computed for each sample. If the sample size is n=25, find the mean and standard deviation of the sample means. If the sample size is n=100, find the mean and standard deviation of the sample means.

Teacher’s salary The average teacher’s salary in New Jersey (ranked first among states) is \$52,174. Suppose the distribution is normal with standard deviation equal to \$7500. What percentage of individual teachers make less than \$45,000? Assume a random sample of 64 teachers is selected, what percentage of the sample means is a salary less than \$45,000?

Height of basketball players Assume the heights of men are normally distributed with a mean of 70.0 inches and a standard deviation of 2.8 inches. What percentage of individual men have a height greater than 72 inches? The mean height of a 16 man roster on a high school team is at least 72 inches. What percentage of sample means from a sample of size 16 are greater than 72 inches? Is this basketball team unusually tall?
