Ok, I need to take the data:

and make a histogram (centered around 0 -- i.e. 0 will not be an edge of a bin) of the data and then fit a gaussian to the data.

This is the normal distribution equation:

And I am to normalize the data using (D1-D2)/D1

I normally would not ask for help with something like this, but it is for a 1unit seminar and this was all the information I was given. I have never even had any statistics education. I tried looking up how to create a histogram and all of that, but just reached a state of utter confusion when it came to "bins."

Can someone at least point me in the right direction?

Code:

```
D1 D2
6.5 3
6 4
6.7 5.5
7 3.8
6.3 4.5
8.6 5.8
5.5 4
7 3.5
7 4.5
7 5
6.5 4
6.8 3.2
7 3.6
6 4.5
6 2.8
```
