Random samples of size 16 are drawn ﬁom the population. Use the central limit theorem to ﬁnd the mean and standard error of the sampling distribution. Then sketch a graph of the sampling distribution. The central limit theorem states that if the population itself is normally distributed, the sampling distribution of sample means is normally distributed for any sample size n. The mean and standard error of the sampling distribution (also called the standard error of the mean) are found using the formulas below. Since it; = u, the mean of the sampling distribution is the same as the population mean. Therefore, u; = 69.5 . 6 Use the formula 6; = V——- to ﬁnd the sample standard error. 11 o 6-:— n 5.75 W =1.44.~ l 1 Recall that the graph of the normal distribution is symmetric about the mean and has a spread deﬁned by the standard deviation.

### 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.

• 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.
