Why is it correct to say a normal distribution?
Why is it correct to say "a" normal distribution and "the" standard normal distribution? "The" standard normal distribution is used to describe one specific normal distribution (mean = 0, standard dev = 1) . "A" normal distribution is used to describe a normal distribution with any mean and standard deviation.
