 Math Emeritus Sci Advisor Thanks PF Gold P: 39,490 Seems to me that you could convert both to a "standard" normal distribution by taking $x'= (x- \mu_x)/\sigma_x$ and $y'= (y- \mu_y)/\sigma_y$. If you don't want to worry about the means, just dividing by the standard deviation of each should give you a distribution with standard deviation 1.
