Central Limit Theorem A Term You Need to Know

The Central Limit Theorem is a fundamental principle in probability and statistics that states that, for a large enough sample size, the distribution of the sample mean will approach a normal distribution, regardless of the underlying distribution of the population from which the sample is drawn. The theorem states that as the sample size increases, the mean of the sample becomes more stable, and the distribution of the sample mean becomes more and more similar to a normal distribution. This theorem has important implications for the use of statistical methods and for the interpretation of the results of statistical tests, as many statistical techniques rely on the assumption of normality. The Central Limit Theorem is widely used in fields such as engineering, biology, and finance, where it is used to make inferences about populations based on the analysis of samples.
