Standard Normal Distribution

#1
Hi,

My question is if a normal distribution with mean = 0, doesn't that mean it will have a standard deviation =1 and it is actually a standard normal distribution?

Thanks

If the distribution has mean = 0 and standard deviation = 1 then it is the standard normal.

However if the mean = 0 then the standard deviation doesnt have to be 1 though.
