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 to transform random variables from a non-normal distribution to a normal distribution?

How would I find a function that transforms random variables from an non-normal probability distribution to a normal distribution? [more inside]

## How would I pick which equation to use?

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.

## A Strange Bucket

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]## what's the probability distribution, kenneth?

for the statisticians: what probability distribution do I want to fit to my data, and how? [more inside]

## Normal, poisson with a twist of outliers.

Do foot sizes follow a normal distribution?

## skew me with your flexible parameter

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]
