The graph of the probability density function (pdf) of a normal distribution, called the normal curve, is a bell-shaped curve. Normal distribution
If the random variable X has a normal distribution with mean and variance 2 , we write: X ~ Normal( , ) or X ~ N( , ) The pdf of X ~ Normal( , ) is given by: Normal distribution 71828 . 2 , 14159 . 3 0 ; 2 1 ) , ; ( ) ( 2 2 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
