  Normal Distribution Curve
Perhaps the most famous and widely used distribution is the normal distribution, otherwise known as the “bell curve.” The reason why the bell curve crops up a lot is because when you have a bunch . . .of independent, complex, real-world factors added together that produce randomly distributed data, that data will often be distributed in a normal or bell-like way. This is called the central limit theorem.

Well, today I’m going to sha . . .tter another belief: your not-from-concentrate premium orange juice was not hand squeezed. In fact, the pulp in it is probably from different oranges than the juice, and the juice has been pulled from different vats and blended according to mathematical models to ensure that each carafe you drink tastes the same as the last.
