# Thread: Marginal and Conditional Distribution

1. ## Marginal and Conditional Distribution

Not sure which one this one is marginal or conditional. The problem is talking about wildebeests and wildfires. The more wildebeests the less percent of grass area is burned.

EXAMPLE

Wildebeest Percent Burned
396 56
476 50

with 19 total different numbers under wildebeest and 19 different under percent burned.

QUESTION: To what extent do these data support the claim that more wildebeest reduce the percent of grasslands that burn? How rapidly does burned area decrease as the number of wildebeest increases?
