Hi,

I am confused with the results of a seemingly simple simulation that is generating a log normally distributed output. Please see the attached results file.

I repeated this experiment 100 times and I was surprised to see log normally distributed results. I was hoping to see a normal distribution with an average of 360.

Can someone please explain what is going on?

Thanks,

**Simulation**: I have built a Scratch program that randomly picks six letters from a group of six letters (A, B, C, D, E & E). The program displays the order in which the letters have been picked. I am interested in finding out how many iterations the program takes to get a specific order of letters (say, EEDCBA).I repeated this experiment 100 times and I was surprised to see log normally distributed results. I was hoping to see a normal distribution with an average of 360.

Thanks,
