## What does the central limit theorem state?

The central limit theorem states that if you have a population with mean μ and standard deviation σ and take sufficiently large random samples from the population with replacement , then the distribution of the sample means will be approximately normally distributed.

**How is central limit theorem used in real life?**

Biologists use the central limit theorem whenever they use data from a sample of organisms to draw conclusions about the overall population of organisms. For example, a biologist may measure the height of 30 randomly selected plants and then use the sample mean height to estimate the population mean height.

### What is normal CDF and PDF?

Probability Density Function (PDF) vs Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF) The CDF is the probability that random variable values less than or equal to x whereas the PDF is a probability that a random variable, say X, will take a value exactly equal to x.

**How do you generate a random Gaussian number in Matlab?**

r = normrnd( mu , sigma ) generates a random number from the normal distribution with mean parameter mu and standard deviation parameter sigma . r = normrnd( mu , sigma , sz1,…,szN ) generates an array of normal random numbers, where sz1,…,szN indicates the size of each dimension.

## What is MGF in statistics?

The moment generating function (MGF) of a random variable X is a function MX(s) defined as MX(s)=E[esX]. We say that MGF of X exists, if there exists a positive constant a such that MX(s) is finite for all s∈[−a,a].

**What is the full form of MGF?**

### What is a Gaussian population?

It states that a sample mean from an infinite population is approximately normal, or Gaussian, with mean the same as the underlying population, and variance equal to the population variance divided by the sample size. The approximation improves as the sample size gets large.

**What is the importance of the central limit theorem?**

The Central Limit Theorem is important for statistics because it allows us to safely assume that the sampling distribution of the mean will be normal in most cases.

## What are the examples of central limit theorem?

Central Limit Theorem Examples

- A population (i.e. 29-year-old males, seniors between 72 and 76, all registered vehicles, all cat owners)
- An average (i.e. 125 pounds, 24 hours, 15 years, $15.74)
- A standard deviation (i.e. 14.4lbs, 3 hours, 120 months, $196.42)

**What is the difference between rand and Randn in MATLAB?**

randn gives a real number between -1 to 1. Mathematically, randn gives a number from Normal Distribution, whereas, rand gives a number from Uniform Distribution.
