# Is the mean and median the same in a normal distribution?

The Normal distribution, informally called the bell curve, is a continuous statistical distribution of real-world random data points.

## Answer: Yes, Mean and Median are the same in a normal distribution.

Let us understand through step by step explanation.

**Explanation:**

They are the same for a normal distribution because the probability density function of the normal distribution is symmetric about its mean. Since the normal distribution is symmetric around its peak value, the mean and median of a normal distribution are equal. We can understand better by analyzing the below graph.
