Lab 6 I. 1. 2. Y has a skewed distribution rather than a uniform distribution. This is not a Normal distribution, because the distribution is not bell-shaped. As the value of Y increases, the bar heights tend to increase. The reason for this is that the square root of a value between 0 and 1 will always be greater than the value itself. Thus, the distribution is shifted toward the right, but it is cut off at 1. 3. The mean of Y is about 0.67, with a standard deviation of
