find points of inflection of normal distribution?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 31st Oct, 2019

Hello there!


To find  Inflection points you need to know that inflection points  are located one standard deviation above the mean and one standard deviation below the mean , so for any normal curve , you can easily find points of inflection , you  can find the x-values for the points of inflection  by subtracting the standard deviation from the mean and adding the standard deviation to the mean to get the two x values for the points of inflection.
