### Mean, Standard Deviation, and the Shape of the Sampling Distribution of the Sampling Mean

The mean of the sample mean is

*μ*, the population mean.The standard deviation of the sample mean is

*σ*⁄ √*n*.When sampling from a normal distribution, the sample mean is normal. When sampling from a non-normal distribution, if the sample size is at least 30 the distribution of the sample mean is approximately normal.

Can you help me solve a problem where I know the demand mean is 750 per week and the Standard deviation for the week is 80 what would the standard deviation be the year (52 weeks)
