Chapter 5: Seagulls and their eggs (The normal distribution) Seagulls are animals that have their babies by laying eggs. Seagulls gather in large groups and lay their eggs in separate nests made from surrounding plants . Sometimes seagulls only lay one egg in their nest but other times they can lay as many as 6. Most of the time gulls lay between 2-4 eggs. If the seagulls wanted to show who could lay the most eggs, the nests could be arranged into a row along the beach. The nests with the least amount of eggs on one side and the nests with the most amount of eggs on the other. Nests with the same amount of eggs would be placed together. This would lead to the greatest number of nests being in the middle of the row, and the least number of nests on the outer edges. This is called the normal distribution of seagull’s nests.

    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.
