hey pf!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i was wondering if someone could either direct me to a source or help supply a proof on why skewness and kurtosis, from their definitions as higher order moments, graphically affect the pdf in the "skewed" and "flat" way.

let me know if ive been unclear.

thanks!
