Understanding the Central Limit Theorem

... The following is an example that demonstrates how the Central Limit Theorem works. Let Y be the outcome from tossing a die. Note that Y is uniformly distributed. There is a equal probability (1/6) that Y takes any of the values in set S={1,2,3,4,5,6}. The mean value μ of Y is 3.5, and the variance i ...
