The central limit theorem is extremely useful because the normal distribution is relatively easy to work with when doing hypothesis testing and forming confidence intervals. We can make very specific inferences about the population mean, using the sample mean, no matter the distribution of the population, as long as the sample size is "large." What you need to know for the exam: 1. If the sample size
