#### Understanding

The mean and MAD of a large random sample drawn from a population can give some indication of the population mean.

### What to look for

In order to have a predictable shape and spread for a simulated sampling distribution, the sample size must be large.### Sample Assessment

Identify each statement as true or false.a) The larger the sample size the more likely that a sample mean will be farther from the population mean.

Answer: False

b) The larger the sample size the more likely a sample mean will approximate the population mean.

Answer: True

c) All simulated distributions of sample means, no matter what sample size, will be mound shaped and symmetric.

Answer: False
