I am not clearly understanding this specific question. if you cld please explain.
I am not providing the data.
If we take the natural log of the area column of the forest fire data, we find that it is approximately Normally distributed. We will call this set of values loge(area).
1. Plot the histogram of loge(area) to show that it is approximately Normal.
Do i just do a histogram? is the loge exchanged to represent forest fire data?
2. Compute the mean and standard deviation of loge(area).
This is pretty straight fwd but must check. The term 'compute' does that mean anything specifically? is that an estimate with a similar resulting answer?? or they just want straight up whatever the mean and 's' is?
3. Assuming that loge(area) follows a Normal distribution with a population mean and population standard deviation equal to the mean and standard deviation from part (i), find the probability that a randomly sampled value from the population of loge(area) will be between 0 and 2.
5. Is there a difference in the previous two answers? Explain why.
Thanks Heaps if you get this!!!
