What percentage of English words have three syllables?
I'm looking to learn how to calculate probabilities for a multi-round dice game. I've researched this question some, and it looks like I might need to know how to use the multinomial distribution, but I can't find any good introductions. Please point me to the most layman-accessible educational material on this subject, and help me to help myself. [more inside]
How would I find a function that transforms random variables from an non-normal probability distribution to a normal distribution? [more inside]
I want to determine the difference between distributions. When would I use kl-divergence and when would I use rmse? It seems like both equations reduce deviation to a single number, but couldn't find a comparison between them.
I have a bucket containing N marbles: M white marbles and N-M black marbles. I need to grab a handful of marbles (n) and figure out the probability of having picked up m white marbles. [more inside]
for the statisticians: what probability distribution do I want to fit to my data, and how? [more inside]
Do foot sizes follow a normal distribution?
FunctionFilter: I need a function that allows me to skew a distribution from a uniform distribution to an extremely biased distribution for a domain and range of (0,1). [more inside]
