And we're going to see in future videos, it's actually going to have a smaller-- well, let me be clear.

## The Central Limit Theorem: Whatâ€™s Large Enough

So I got it twice. Thus, it was approximately a coin flip whether one would get a significant result, even though, in reality, the effect size was meaningful. Attribution All the information on this page comes from Stat Trek: The more closely the original population resembles a normal distribution, the fewer sample points will be required. So let's say I have a distribution.

The Poisson probability is: Carlos Accioly Carlos Accioly 2,818 3 21 26. And that is a neat thing about the central limit theorem. And what it tells us is we can start off with any distribution that has a well-defined mean and variance-- and if it has a well-defined variance, it has a well-defined standard deviation. So an orange, that's the case for n is equal to 4. Let's say I get another 3.

The Poisson probability is:. Let me define something. And it doesn't apply just to taking the sample mean.

On the right are shown the resulting frequency distributions each based on 500 means. I'm going to have something that's starting to approximate a normal distribution.

## STA 2023: Statistics: The Central Limit Theorem

But let me just do one more in detail. To solve this problem, we need to define the sampling distribution of the mean. And what you're going to see is, as I take many, many samples of size 4, I'm going to have something that's going to start kind of approximating a normal distribution.
