Fri, 24 Oct 2014 01:27:29 GMTMy wife was overdue clearing customs so I thought the probability of her showing up any minute was increasing.
But then I thought, suppose
-there...My wife was overdue clearing customs so I thought the probability of her showing up any minute was increasing.

But then I thought, suppose
-there is a snag in customs?
-something else happened?
-she is somehow not on this flight at all?
so the probability of her NOT showing up any minute was also increasing.

How can both be true at the same time?

Stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange follows a non-normal distribution with mean
µ = 11.2 percent and a standard deviation of σ = 8.4 percent.

That was given to me and I have to answer whether or not I can find the probability that a single stock has an annual return less than 34 percent? Explain why or why not.

I'm really struggling with this class and can't seem to figure out where to begin in answering this question.
