Mathematical model If the pattern is sufficiently regular, approximate it with a smooth curve A curve that is always on or above the horizontal axis and has total area underneath equal to 1 is called a density curve .

Density curves Area under the curve in a range of values indicates the proportion of values in that range Keep in mind that density is only an approximation (an idealized mathematical model), but it simplifies analysis and is generally accurate enough for practical use.

Density curves come in a variety of shapes, but the family of “ normal ” distributions with familiar bell-shaped density curves is commonly used
Background image of page 14
Normal distributions All the normal distributions can be generated from the standard normal distribution by changing locations and scales ( linear transformations ) The standard normal distribution has density function defined by It has mean equal to 0 and variance equal to 1.
