What sort of distribution (eg binomial, normal..) would you expect each of the following to be? I am trying to get my head around all of these, so any help will be appreciated!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1)the number of goals scored during a football match

2)the height in inches of an individual

3)the number of tosses of a coin before 5 heads are observed

4)the number of heads in 20 tosses of a coin

5)the number of deaths by suicide in a large town in a year

Could you help me to estimate the parameters of the distribution, or identify some of the characteristics to let me know why?

thanx
