Can you tell me if 2.08166 is a normal distribution? When I look on a scale of From -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 Z----> It looks to me that it would be a normal distrution. Iam I right?

A distribution is a collection of data, not just one number. So no, 2.08166 is not a distribution, normal or otherwise. Sorry.
