The statistics software package, Excel, has the ability to generate values of variables from various distributions, including normal distributions with specified mean and standard deviation. For this investigation, you will obtain 25 observations from ( 29 15 , 100 N distribution, and calculate certain descriptive measures for these observations. You will repeat this procedure a number of times and then study the results. Procedure. 1. Generate 25 values from the ( 29 15 , 100 N distribution and put the values in column 1.
