check that one

- anonymous

are u there?

- UnkleRhaukus

you have to compair the standard deviations of each curve, remember that the sum of areas under each curve is one

- anonymous

but , how ? could you explain it?

- UnkleRhaukus

|dw:1363240984062:dw|

- UnkleRhaukus

theses are two normal curves with the same mean , but different std.div

- UnkleRhaukus

the both have the same area ,; the sum of densities is one

- anonymous

there are not same mean?

- UnkleRhaukus

can you tell be which curve has the greatest std. div , the red or black curve

- anonymous

red?

- UnkleRhaukus

right , because less of the red is as close the mean as the black

- UnkleRhaukus

now if the means are different will this effect which is taller ?

- anonymous

no

- UnkleRhaukus

right , the maximun height of the curve is only dependent of the std.div

- UnkleRhaukus

So Y has a std.div of 10
and X has a std.div of 5

- UnkleRhaukus

something like this |dw:1363241494740:dw|

- anonymous

so x has higher density curve ?

- anonymous

and the area under the density curve for
X is less then (ii) the area under the density curve for Y .

- anonymous

is that righ?

- anonymous

hello?

- UnkleRhaukus

x has higher density ✓

- UnkleRhaukus

remember that the area under each density curve must sum to one

- anonymous

so its same

- anonymous

euqal

- UnkleRhaukus

yerh

- anonymous

thank you so much

- anonymous

i got it

- UnkleRhaukus

does it make senses now?

- anonymous

yes thanks

- UnkleRhaukus

cool
