# Is the Sample Mean equal to the Sample Median for a Normal distribution?

I was just wondering if you can answer this question. I cannot find a simple answer online. Yes or no?

Also, how do you calculate the Sample Mean of a Normal Distribution. I was told it was not simply taking the mean of the data, and there was a more specific method.

Thank you for your time!

x <- rnorm(100); mean(x)==median(x)

The sample mean of $$n$$ observations drawn from a normal distribution is the usual $$\bar{x}=\dfrac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^nx_i$$.
