The curve is in the form of normal distribution if it is bell shaped and symmetric and the curve is called the density curve which is symmetric, and centered around its mean and the spread is determined by its standard deviation.
The uniform continuous distribution is the curve in which all the intervals have same length and the standard deviation for this curve must be | or less than 1, which means the variance of uniform continuous distribution is less than 1.
The height of density curve with standard deviation is higher around mean in normal distribution because it became narrow around the mean whereas the graph of uniform continuous distribution represents uniformity in all interval.
Thus, the standard normal distribution has higher density curve at the mean than uniform distribution.

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.
The middle 95% of residuals should be between which two values? Use this information to give an interval of plausible values for the weekly sales revenue if 5 linear feet are allocated to the stores

Basic Computation:p^ Distribution Suppose we have a binomial experiment in which success is defined to be a particular quality or attribute that interests us.
(a) Suppose n=33 and p=0.21. Can we approximate the p^
distribution by a normal distribution? Why? What are the values of μp^ and σp^.?

At a certain college, 6% of all students come from outside the United States. Incoming students there are assigned at random to freshman dorms, where students live in residential clusters of 40 freshmen sharing a common lounge area. How many international students would you expect to find in a typical cluster? With what standard deviation?
