Hi, I have used some code that generates random numbers in a Gaussian distribution.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

when I plot say 100 numbers I don't get the bell curve although all the data seems to be around the correct mean value and changing the variance effects the spread.

Am I wrong to expect the bell curve or am I not plotting it right? I am not entirely sure what to put on the other axis thanks.
