Continuous Probability Distributions  The bell curve is the perfect example of a normal distribution curve o These curves have an asymptotic relationship: where the data goes towards infinity and negative infinity on either end but will never reach 0 o Density function: the smooth representation of the population data distribution  The standard normal distribution is denoted X~N(0,1)  How to Read a Distribution: o X follows (~) N (m (mu, or the average), ∂ (sigma, or the standard deviation)) o This tells you how the distribution will look  Z: the number of standard deviations that an X-value is away from the mean  In order to look up probabilities/proportions for questions in the table in the back
