I want the bins for the histogram to be of width 1/4, and I want the area under the histogram to equal 1. I would like to be reasonably sure (say, with probability 0.95) that the height of the central bar (the one for the bin from 0 to 1/4) lies within 5% of its true, theoretical value.
2 standard deviations of H < h/20?
You might find it convenient to carry out your experiments by means of a macro. If so, you should use a text editor to create a file called myhist.mac in the T: directory (or in some other directory where you can save things). The file should contain lines:
gmacro myhist [put your commands for drawing the histogram in here] endmacroTo get Minitab to run your commands you would type
%T:myhistat the Minitab prompt (in the session window--don't forget to enable commands first).
If you want to experiment using the menus, look in the history window for the corresponding commands. You can copy and paste these commands into your macro.
