If many samples of size 15 (that is, each sample consists of 15 items) were taken from a large normal population with a mean of 18 and variance of 5, what would be the mean, variance, standard deviation and shape of the distribution of sample means? Give reasons for your answers.

Population standard deviation=square root of population variance=sqrt(5)= 2.2361
Since Population is normally distributed,
