The distributions were fitted into the normal distribution curves. The mean number of flowers for the two parents Yalo and Jos were 20 and 14 respectively with standard deviation of 5.367 and 8.083.
By normal distribution curve, the reference values were established, and mean+-2 SD were taken as significant.
4, black diamond curve denotes recorded value and blue square curve denotes [gamma] ([gamma] = 3) parameter exponential distribution curve. The time interval of member joining follows exponential distribution because of two curves nearly coincide with each other.
Pseudo section, resistivity cross-section, and statistical distribution curves are also prepared using iteration software to obtain a trend change in resistivity and its nature across the profile.
Optical or impedance method generates platelet distribution curve from which platelet indices like Mean Platelet Volume (MPV), Platelet Distribution Width (PDW) and the platelet large cell ratio can be derived (Table 1).
Training programs for Six Sigma nearly always use statistical analysis that assumes a normal distribution curve. This might be acceptable for the typical two and some three sigma projects.
But fund managers make different predictions about future market performance, and the differences ultimately generate a distribution curve of returns as some funds do better than others.
By drawing the strain data of the monitoring points in six different paths, the strain distribution curve of different parts can be achieved as follows.
It is widely reported that the settlement curve for a single tunnel takes the shape of an inverted Gaussian distribution curve symmetrical to the tunnel axis at right angles [15].
Next, we created the log-normal frequency distribution curve based on pathological results of the two groups (Figures 3(b) and 3(c)).
