Central Limit Theorem:
Regardless of the population distribution model, as the sample size increases, the sample mean tends to be normally distributed around the population mean.
The t distribution, also known as Student t-distribution, is a probability distribution that is used to estimate population parameters when the sample size is small and when the population variance is unknown.

Rare Event Rule for Inferential Statistics: if under a given assumption, the probability of a particular observed event is extremely rare, we conclude that the assumption is probably incorrect.

Probability: The Deck of Cards.
A deck of cards consists of 4 suits, 13 cards each for a total of 52 cards. The four suits are: Spades, Hearts, Diamonds, and Clubs. Each suit contains an A (Ace), numbers from 2 to 10, and three face cards: J, The Jack; Q, the Queen and K, the King.
Colors: Hearts and Diamonds are red, Spades and Clubs are black.
