    Statistics question

    hello!

    I am wondering if you could please explain these questions to me please.

    Q1.
    Count the fraction of samples from the forest fire data where loge(area) lies between 0 and 2.


    Does this literally mean count the fractions in log form between 0 and 2?

    So an example, if there are 200 number and 1 is between 0 and 2. In fraction form would I answer it as 1/200. Is that what they are asking?

    Q2.
    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.

    I don't understand this question, would it be the same as question 1?


    Q3.
    Is there a difference in the previous two answers? Explain why.


    I don't think there will be a difference.
    fraction is not an entire number
    probability is something probable


    If you could kindly help thanks heaps!

    It would be most helpful here if we could see the data set.
