Re: probabilty help

Well, I personally skipped over it cause I didn't have a clue. So whether that's because it needs more information, or if it's because it involves something I just don't know anything about, I don't know. Perhaps both. (I am curious where the standard deviation of 8 came from though.)

Re: probabilty help

eriness,

basically i am not after the answer of the question merely the means to working it out .... those were not exact figures , i just made them up for here sake .....

it could be
A 22
B 26
C 27 with std dev of 4

BUT i am trying to find out the way to work out the probability of A being the highest scoring team on the weekend OR i could also ask what B or C is as well i guess .......

thnx for reply cheers troy
