**02/18:** The standard Normal distribution. Applications. Central Limit theorem. Chapter6 Notes**.**

**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.

**T-Distribution:**

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.

**R code:** > barplot(dbinom(x = 0:10, size = 10, prob = 0.5),names.arg = 0:10,space=0, main="Binomial dist histogram for n=10, p=.5")

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.

**Spades**, **Hearts, Diamonds**, **Clubs**:
