    Re: Distribution

    Three common measures for the "center" of a distribution are mean, median, and mode. Perhaps this is referring that for an unskewed normal distribution they are all the same?

    Willem2, You see that 'Q' at the start of the thread, that means Question! He means that at the centre of a normal distribution bell curve, there are three pieces of information that are avaliable to be found out by using just the middle of this curve. i.e. 'Something,Something and Something' these are just stating that there are three variables he is trying to figure out.
