All copies in use and 1 hold??? Now THAT'S surprising.
I got an "A" in college Statistics 1, and a "C-" in college Statistic 2. Now, 40 years on, I was hoping to get a better handle on this stuff than I did as a student. Nope. Understood things - more or less - through page 40, then had to give it up. Good luck to you all.
Almost forgot. The one thing I did learn is that 95% of occurrences with fall within 2 standard deviations (that's two on each side of the bell curve). Useful to know.
