Central limit theorem If X is the mean of a random sample X 1 , …, X n, of size n from a distribution with finite mean μ and finite positive variance σ 2 , then the distribution of: σ μ n n T n X W o = = is N(0,1) as n . Important points to notice: o When n is “sufficiently large” (n>30), a practical use of the CLT is : () w dz e w W P z w Φ = 2 2 2 1 π o The theorem holds for any distribution with finite mean and variance.
