# Question

What are some takeaways we should have by playing around with the sampling applet in the workspace here?

# Answer

By entering a number `n`

into the box for “Number of Samples”, we notice that the graph labeled “Sample” shows exactly `n`

small boxes. These boxes are the result of taking a sample and then plotting its mean.

Our key takeaways from playing around with this applet are that

- The larger the value of
`n`

that we choose, the more the “Sample” distribution will look like a normal distribution. - Observing the mean of the “Sample” distribution, unsurprisingly
`n`

has an effect on the mean, but more surprising is that the “Sample” mean is about the same as the “Population” mean for all values of`n`

after a certain point.
