Simulate 10000 of X and Y random variables using excels Data Analysis package where both X and Y are normal with mean = 20 and standard deviation = 5.
Show, using simulations, that the variables Z= min(X,Y) and W=max(X,Y) are NOT normally distributed.
Y any interest?C© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 10:42 pm ad1c9bdddf

Here it is.
The median and the average of the number sets are very close, which makes it extremely hard, if not impossible to distinguish between the distributions.
If you have any questions, let me know.
