How do you develop a bell curve for 1,000 cases:
With a given mean of 20 and a standard deviation of 2, how do you compute the -3,-2,-1 (mean), +1,+2,+3 points along the baseline of the curve (assuming the curve is normal)? Then repeat the mean of 10 pounds and the standard deviation is 4.5. Repeat again with a mean of 4 seconds and a standard deviation of 2. Now how do I determine the number of cases that fell in each standard deviation division for the distribution of the 1,000 cases?
The following is an exploration of the properties of the normal curve in fairly non-technical terms. In the attached document I begin by defining the functional ...
This solution calculates various means along the a normal curve. The standard deviation division for the distribution is determined.
