It's because of the central limit theorem |

Becauase the sample size is more than 30. |

All, sample with size 50 is drawn from population. it's means population more that 50, but it's left skewed. my question, can we assume if sample size >30 it's normal distribution? |

@ zzhmanov's question: yea, i would want to know that too |

Yes anything greater than 30 can be assumed to approach a normal distribution. |
