# Resolved: Transformation in normal distribution

Why do the normal distribution curve shrink after we multiply with a constant c,i.e,y=f(x.c)

Why dont it expand?

Hello Radhey,

This is really depends on the size of the constant you're multiplying the normal distribution by. If it is <1 then it'll shrink and conversely if it is larger than 1 the normal distribution would expand.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

No, it is incorrect it will shrink if it is >1

See the link shared in the video about standardization. The video says the same.
