CENTRAL LIMIT THEOREM FORMULADEVENDRA VISHWAKARMA
The Central Limit Theorem is the sampling distribution of the sampling means approaches a normal distribution as the sample size gets larger, no matter what the shape of the data distribution. An essential component of the Central Limit Theorem is the average of sample means will be the population mean.
Similarly, if you find the average of all of the standard deviations in your sample, you will find the actual standard deviation for your population.
- Mean of sample is same as mean of the population.
- Standard deviation of the sample is equal to standard deviation of the population divided by square root of sample size.
Central limit theorem is applicable for a sufficiently large sample sizes (n≥30). The formula for central limit theorem can be stated as follows:
μ = Population mean
σ = Population standard deviation
= Sample mean
= Sample standard deviation
n = Sample size
Standard deviation of the population = 15 kg
sample size n = 50
Mean of the sample is given by:
= 70 kg
Standard deviation of the sample is given by:
= 2.121 = 2.1 kg (approx)
