Let X denote the length in millimeters of an organism. Assume that this variable X is Normally distributed with mean 12.2 and standard deviation 5.6. Let X denote the sample mean length for any random sample of four organisms.
What is the (theoretical) distribution of all such X's?
They give us a page of different sized organisms...im thinking this means i have to measure all of them or 4 of them
The distribution of sample means of samples of size N drawn from a normal distribution N(mu, sigma^2) is:

so in this case X is normally distributed with mean 12.2 and SD 5.6/2 = 2.8.
