## Introduction to Sampling Distributions

This section introduces sampling distribution using a concrete, discrete example, followed by a continuous example. This section also discusses sampling distributions' relationship to inferential statistics.

### Introduction to Sampling Distributions

#### Answers

- The more samples, the closer the relative frequency distribution will
come to the sampling distribution. The sampling distribution only equals
the relative frequency distribution exactly when there is an infinite
number of samples.
- All of the given choices: Every statistic has a sampling distribution.
- The standard deviation of the sampling distribution of the mean: The standard error of the mean is the standard deviation of the sampling distribution of the mean.
