MATH 226 – October 22, 2007 Normal Distribution o Gaussian Distribution (bell-shaped) o o inflection at one standard deviation o μ = EX σ = sqrt(Var(x)) f(x) = (1/sqrt(2π) σ)e^-(x – μ) 2 /2σ 2 o the larger the standard deviation is the more narrow the distribution Standard Deviation in a Normal distribution o Within one is 68% o Within two is 95% o Within three is 99.7% Standard normal (Z) o Mean of 0 and STD of 1 o Z ~ N(0,1) o X ~ N(μ, σ 2 ) o Ф(z) = P(Z ≤ z) Cdf of N(0,1) is tabulated
