WHAT DOES NORMAL CURVE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

normal curve

Normal distribution

In probability theory, the normal distribution is a very commonly occurring continuous probability distribution—a function that tells the probability that any real observation will fall between any two real limits or real numbers, as the curve approaches zero on either side. Normal distributions are extremely important in statistics and are often used in the natural and social sciences for real-valued random variables whose distributions are not known. The normal distribution is immensely useful because of the central limit theorem, which states that, under mild conditions, the mean of many random variables independently drawn from the same distribution is distributed approximately normally, irrespective of the form of the original distribution: physical quantities that are expected to be the sum of many independent processes often have a distribution very close to the normal. Moreover, many results and methods can be derived analytically in explicit form when the relevant variables are normally distributed. The Gaussian distribution is sometimes informally called the bell curve. However, many other distributions are bell-shaped.

Definition of normal curve in the English dictionary

The definition of normal curve in the dictionary is a symmetrical bell-shaped curve representing the probability density function of a normal distribution. The area of a vertical section of the curve represents the probability that the random variable lies between the values which delimit the section.
