    Sampling Distribution of Xbar

    This lesson considers the fundamentals of the sampling distribution of the sample mean, and discusses how to calculate the parameters and probabilities associated with it, using a normal probability table and Minitab. This lesson also demonstrates the Central Limit Theorem using simulated data.
