according to the central limittheorem, whats the distribution of this sample mean, y bar?
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.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
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
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
