## How to present and evaluate data relative to weight

I could use some help walking through this: I have Excel data that means more or less depending on where it comes from. When I'm working with it, presenting it, or thinking about it, I want to treat it differently depending on origin. Example within.

## is this a good use case for a gamma distribution?

I want to generate synthetic user-session data to predict how big a peak in application usage might be shortly before a weekly deadline (for timesheet submission - it's a time and labour tracking application). I've come up with a method that looks like it works - it involves a gamma distribution for the login time. But I don't have enough (in fact, any) statistical training to know whether I'm using that distribution meaningfully. Statisticians, please reassure me. Thanks! Excel functions inside...

## Find standard deviation in Excel, but first develop a labor-saving trick

Help me with statistics and Excel. Especially help me if you know any labor saving methods. I want the median, mean and standard deviation for the average price of all items sold, but my spreadsheet-full-of-data doesn't tell me the price of each sale -- just the average price per store, and the number sold at that store. Something like this:

## Help me determine rate of imprement for my players!

I coach a high school soccer team. Each practice we go through a routine which involves repetitions of various skills. The number of repetitions accomplished by a player for each skill is recorded in an excel spreadsheet for ranking purposes. I want to determine the rate of improvement so the players can see their progress and who's improving most. Is there a simple excel function that would help me do this?

## Stats/Maths filter: How do I solve a sigmoidal?

I am trying to fit my data onto a sigmoidal function. The fit won't be perfect, but I am stuck with it for now. To help with this, I have been (very generously) given a spreadsheet that creates a sigmoidal curve if the values a, b, x0 and x are known. How do I get these values?

## StatisticsFilter: Correlation over time?

If I'm looking at existing statistical data, how do I try to find a correlation between two variables over time? Scatterplots have confused me, because they don't seem to reflect the passage of time, but just where x and y meet. Pearson's r doesn't seem to do it either w/r/t time.

## Help me calculate a hidden value in my data

I've spent the past day or so trying to figure out how to calculate a hidden value in my data. It varies linearly with time, or closely enough that we can make that assumption within any given dataset. Where this goes beyond a simple linear regression is that each datapoint is known to be above or below the hidden value. The data is collected in a C# program and processed in Excel; an Excel function would be the ideal solution.
