    Unhappy Help with normal distribution




    Hi All!

    I'm new to this forum and found it after spending 2 hours doing statistics homework. I'm trying to find an example, online, of the normal distribution in a business context. For example: management, finance. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've been searching for the past 2 hours and am not having any luck. Thanks!

    Go to Google and use search terms such as histogram, portfolio, risk assessment, etc.

    Hi FFEMT81,

    Here is a site on business statistics.

    http://home.ubalt.edu/ntsbarsh/Busin...at/opre504.htm

    Under "Normal Density Functions" there is an application:

    "A portfolio manager believes that the overnight loss of his portfolio is distributed normally with mean $0 and standard deviation of $10 000. Find the 5% one-day value at risk for this portfolio."

    Hope this helps.
