# Math Help - Central limit theorem?

1. ## Central limit theorem?

Laser length tool has an average error of 0cm, and the standard deviation error of 1 cm.

We are measuring the length of a table. And we repeat that 20 times. What is the probability that the error is less than 0.5 cm?

I understand it like this;

The laser tool is distributed normal:

$X = N(0,1)$

We take the 20 mesaurments of the table, and that is also distributed normal like this:

$Y = N(0,\frac{1}{\sqrt{20}})$

So with this Y value, I calculate with $\phi$ function and look at the standard normal distribution table, and get..

$\phi(\frac{0.5-0}{0.2236}) = 0.98$

Is this correct?, Or I have missed something?

yes, you are correct.
