Step 1
The mean represents the average and it determines the centre of the distribution and the standard deviation represents the spread of the distribution.
Step 2
a) Here, it is observed that the mean determines the center of the distribution. Thus, it can be concluded that two normal distributions having the same mean are centered at the same place. Thus, the given statement is true.
b) Here, it is observed that the standard deviation determines the spread of the distribution. Thus, it can be concluded that two normal distributions that have the same standard deviation have the same spread. Thus, the given statement is true.

The manager of the store in the preceding exercise calculated the residual for each point in the scatterplot and made a dotplot of the residuals.
The distribution of residuals is roughly Normal with a mean of $0 and standard deviation of $22.92.
