    Red face plotting a randomly generated weibull distribution values

    Hello,

    I am not a math person. I am looking to verify the shape of Weibull distribution curve generated by a random Weibull distribution. Since I dont know the value of x here how can I plot the weibull distribution data?

    I have the scale parameter to be 2.30 and shape to be 1.18 to my knowledge I should get a gaussian type curve since the shape is greater than 1.

    are you asking how to generate random weibull values and plot them, or plot the theretical shape of the weibull distribution?



    Assuming you want to generate weibull data, you may want to try Inverse transform sampling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
