One of the most important distributions in statistics is the standard normal distribution.
We discuss this distribution in detail in Chapter 6.
a. Use the technology of your choice to generate a sample of 3000 observations from a variable that has the standard normal distribution, that is, a normal distribution with mean 0 and standard deviation 1.
b. Use the technology of your choice to get a relative-frequency histogram for the 3000 observations that you obtained in part (a).
c. Based on the histogram you obtained in part (b), what shape does the standard normal distribution have? Explain your reasoning.
