1 Normal Distribution Maya Dras 1a) This is a positive skew distribution because the positive tail is longer than the negative tail. This probability distribution curve would occur if there are more people below the median. income levels often follow this probability distribution this is because income levels generally have a positive skew. b) This graph represents a uniform distribution. This probability distribution would occur when all events are of equal probability. For example, when rolling 6-sided dice, the probability of rolling any given side will create this probability distribution curve because all possibilities are equally likely. c) This graph shows a decreasing probability rate. For example, the odds are greater for heads when tossing a coin on the first attempt. Then the long line of tails, before a head comes up is increasingly unlikely. The most likely result is the smallest result, the odds of each higher results are smaller than the one before it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
