Normal mean and variance

`normstat`

is a function specific to normal distribution. Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ also offers generic functions to compute summary statistics, including mean (`mean`

), median (`median`

), interquartile range (`iqr`

), variance (`var`

), and standard deviation (`std`

). These generic functions support various probability distributions. To use these functions, create a`NormalDistribution`

probability distribution object and pass the object as an input argument.
