MTH 156 Normal Distribution Discussion 5

When one thinks of the normal distribution, the first thing that comes to mind is the bell curve and grades. While this is one example of a normal curve that is widely recognized, it is not the only one. Come up with a unique normal distribution from literature that your classmates have not posted about already. Explain your normal curve with items such as the mean and standard deviation. What do the areas in the intervals µ – σ to µ + σ, µ – 2σ to µ + 2σ and µ – 3σ to µ + 3σ represent as far as areas under the normal curve? With the mean and standard deviation, calculate what the actual intervals are for your normal curve. Please include any citations regarding where you obtained the data for your curve.
