Mean and variance of X-bar

MGF of linear combination of independent sample

MGF of X-bar

Example: SRS(11) from gamma, find dist'n of X-bar

Proposition: SRS(n) from norm, then X-bar is normal, too

Sum of independent chisq is chisq, and df's add

Sum of squared standard normals is chisq with df = n

Theorem: SRS(n) from norm, then

  1. X-bar and S2 are independent
  2. S2 is scaled chisq with df = n - 1

Linear combinations of independent normals is normal, too

Central Limit Theorem

statement of the theorem


  • if X's are normal, then X-bar is normal
  • if X's are close to normal, then X-bar is close to normal, too
  • Discrete/continuous doesn't matter
  • how large is large?
