What can you glean as the shape of the distribution Gould found himself up against on receiving his diagnosis? (normal symmetricaVskewedleft-hand or right-hand).

  1. J. Gould in 1982 faced a harsh diagnosis of terminal abdominal cancer. He researched and learned the median life-expectancy for a person given a like diagnosis and initially was discouraged (as many cancer diagnosed patients are on receiving their diagnoses).Though as an evolutionary biologist another hard reality of statistics emerged that allowed him to craft and adopt a statistical strategy for dealing with the reality of the median life-expectancy for similar diagnoses.
    What was the statistical strategy Gould adopted? (1 point; a succinct phrase or sentence please):
    2a. (1/2 pt.) What can you glean as the shape of the distribution Gould found himself up against on receiving his diagnosis? (normal symmetricaVskewedleft-hand or right-hand).
    b) (1/2 pt) What details in Goulds description of the distribution allow you to know this shape?
  2. (1 pt.) using Goulds example as a model describe one of the prominent parameters (shape spread center) of a distribution you a friend or a family member has had to confront in their lifetimes; one whose parameters you have learned by coming up against that distribution much as Gould did.
