[Continued from Grasping the normal distribution (Part 4)]   Working the statistics For my last trick, I'd like to show you how to use Equation 37 to compute statistical parameters like mean, variance, and standard deviation. For each of these parameters, we'll be evaluating integra......

[Continued from Grasping the normal distribution (Part 3)]   <b>What if I <i>want</i> areas?</b> As we've discussed, the sum of the probabilities for all possible results must add up to unity. And indeed they do, in <b>Figure 8</b>. If, for a given &q......
