# Normal Distribution

## is the most important of all probability distributions.

It is applied directly to many practical problems, and
several very useful distributions are based on it.

7.1 Characteristics
Many empirical frequency distributions have the following characteristics:
They are approximately symmetrical, and the mode is close to the centre of the d
istribution.
The mean, median, and mode are close together.
The shape of the distribution can be approximated by a bell: nearly flat on top,
then decreasing more quickly, then decreasing more slowly toward the tails of t
he distribution. This implies that values close to the mean are relatively frequ
ent, and values farther from the mean tend to occur less frequently.
Remember that we are dealing with a random variable, so a frequency distribution
will not fit this pattern exactly. There will be random variations from this ge
neral pattern.
Remember also that many frequency distributions do not conform to this pattern.
As it is called normal probability distribution or the normal distribution or some
times called the Gaussian distribution, is a theoretical distribution,
can be used to approximate many empirical distributions.
It is useful in approximating the distribution of many errors of measurement.
