The mean and MAD of a large random sample drawn from a population can give some indication of the population mean.
What to look forIn order to have a predictable shape and spread for a simulated sampling distribution, the sample size must be large.
Sample AssessmentIdentify 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.
b) The larger the sample size the more likely a sample mean will approximate the population mean.
c) All simulated distributions of sample means, no matter what sample size, will be mound shaped and symmetric.
