# Distribution of Normal Means with Different Sample Sizes

Distribution of Normal Means with Different Sample Sizes

Samples of a given size were taken from a normal distribution with mean 52 and standard deviation 14. The distribution of sample means for samples of size 16 (in blue) does not change but acts as a reference to show how the other curve (in red) changes as you move the slider to change the sample size. Distributions of sample means from a normal distribution change with the sample size. This Demonstration lets you see how the distribution of the means changes as the sample size increases or decreases.
