assume that the duration od human pregnancies can be described by a normal model with a mean 266 days and standard deviation 16 days. suppose a certain obstetrician is currently providing prenatal care to 60 pregnant women. let y bar represent the mean length of their pregnancies.

The number of women are = n =60

normal model with mean           =266 days

standard deviation                      =16 days

The central limit theorem shows that y bar represent the mean length with normal distribution with mean of y and standard deviation of y bar is equal to standard deviation of y divided by square root of n

X bar ~ N.D( μ = 266 , σ = 16/sqrt60)

X bar ~ N.D( μ = 266 , σ = 2.065)

The distribution of this sample with mean 266 and standard deviation is 2.065
