I am going to draw 40 numbers from exponential distribution [2] (you can do it for any distribution) for 1000 times and examine the distribution of the means. In R, you can do it by rexp(40, lambda), where lambda is the rate parameter. The mean of exponential distribution is 1/lambda and the standard deviation is also 1/lambda.

**Set lambda = 0.2 for all of the simulations for this specific test.**

see a gist below.
