probability plot of the residuals:
This is a classic example of what a normal probability plot looks like when the residuals are normally distributed, but there is just one outlier. The relationship is approximately linear with the exception of the one data point. We could proceed with the assumption that the error terms are normally distributed upon removing the outlier from the data set.
Skewed (positive) residuals
The following histogram of residuals suggests that the residuals (and hence the error terms) are not normally distributed. On the contrary, the distribution of the residuals is quite skewed (to the right).
Here's the corresponding normal probability plot of the residuals

ratios b_1 and G_1 are both biased estimators of the population skewness \gamma_1; their expected values can even have the opposite sign from the true skewness. (For instance a mixed distribution consisting of very thin Gaussians centred at −99, 0.5, and 2 with weights 0.01, 0.66, and 0.33 has a skewness of about −9.77, but in a sample of 3, G_1 has an expected value of about 0.32, since usually all three samples are in the positivevalued part of the distribution, which is skewed the other way.) Nevertheless, b_1 and G_1 each have obviously the correct expected value of zero for any symmetric distribution with a finite third moment, including a normal distribution.

In a candy shop, customers arrive at the shop according to an exponential distribution with mean time of 2 minutes. Cutomer service themselves by choosing the candy and filling their candy bag. The time of this self service follows a normal distribution with a mean of 3 minutes and a standard deviation of 2 minutes. Customers pay at one of two counters. If both counters are occupied, customers wait in one queue. The time to pay follows a normal distribution with a mean of 1 minute and a standard deviation of 0.4 minutes.

Topic: Is transport, distribution and logistics in mainland China efficient?
The distribution, transportation and logistics area of China is considered to be extremely intricate and complex as well as being very competitive. Companies far and wide continue to fight for a share within China as their market rapidly grows from time to time. Their economic growth has seen to have increased in the past years positioning them second to the United States. China’s current physical infrastructure has also been developing quickly over time although executives have realised that operational and regulatory processes have often hindered efficiency.

normal distribution. The PDF for the normal distribution is
(x−µ)2 1 e− 2σ2 f (x) = √ 2πσ
The trick to this problem is that we are going to use Φ to represent the CDF of the normal distribution so no integration is necessary. That is, P (Z ≤ z) = Φ(z) The value at which we compute Φ is called a zscore and, z= x−µ σ
The value Φ(z) can be found by using a standard normal distribution ztable, using a calculator with the Normal CDF or by integration. Also, remember that for continuous distributions, P (Z ≤ z) = P (Z < z) because P (Z = z) = 0. I may use these interchangeably. (a) P (X > 5) Recall that P (X > 5) = 1 − P (X ≤ 5) and P (Z ≤ z) = Φ(z). Then,
P (X > 5) = 1 − P (X ≤ 5) 5 − 10

number of “Yes” responses in the sample by the total number of customers that participated in the survey (115). For the first question, then, p = 63/115 = 0.5478. This means that roughly 55% of surveyed customers agree that deliveries were on time. Whether we can use this inference as a reasonable approximation for the true population value, however, depends on the distribution of p. To do this, we look to see whether the sample size is sufficiently large enough such that np ≥ 5 and n(1p) ≥ 5. Still considering the first question, both 115(.55) = 63.25 ≥ 5 and 115(.45) = 51.75 ≥ 5, so we can safely conclude that the sampling distribution may be approximated by a normal distribution

. If a firm earns a 20 percent return on equity and the firm calculates that its cost of capital is only 12 percent, then we would conclude that the firm has a competitive advantage. Both of these methods of assessing the competitive advantage of a firm point back to our definition of a competitive advantage: the ability to create more economic value than competitors.
Normal Economic Return
When a firm just earns its cost of capital it is said to be earning a normal economic return. Such a firm is meeting the expectations of the market with regard to the level of risk an investment in such firm entails. Another way of looking at this idea is that if a firm is earning a normal return

The company has a 95% probability of demand for the Weather Teddy being between 10,000 and 30,000 units. Therefore, 95% of the data is within two standard deviations of the mean. The standard deviation is 5,000, or the data deviates from the mean by 5,000 units.

It seems that realized price is better than estimated price because realized price has a relative high expected value at the same level of risk.

Biology of Cancer
Cancer encompasses a broad range of diseases of multiple causes that can arise in any cell of the body capable of evading regulatory controls of proliferation and differentiation.
Two major dysfunctions present in the process of cancer are (1) defective cell proliferation (growth) and (2) defective cell differentiation.
Cancer cells usually proliferate at the same rate of the normal cells of the tissue from which they arise. However, cancer cells divide indiscriminately and haphazardly and sometimes produce more than two cells at the time of mitosis.
Through differentiation, cells become capable of performing only specific functions.

In order to understand the demand uncertainty we need to know the probability demand will be less than Q for a desired Q. Hence we need some kind of demand distribution function that we can use in the model.

As the model provides the trade off between ordering too much and too little, we next calculate the cost of ordering too much (overage cost Co) and ordering too little
