Normal Distribution | |
Summary |
a normal distribution has a frequency curve which is bell-shaped. many populations in real life have approximately normal distributions. e.g. heights, weights or iqs of a large group of people. normal curves are symmetrical about the mean, median and mode. solving problems involving normal distributions usually requires using the standard normal curve which has a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. the total area and probability under a standard normal curve is 1. |
