Concerning your post of a few months ago:

Shouldn't the alpha and beta be 1 more than those you wrote? E.g. alpha = (mean) x (sample size) + 1; beta = (1 - mean) x (sample size) + 1 84.23.63.203 (talk) 03:30, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

You are correct, there is a problem. I replied in the talk page of the beta distribution http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_distribution Dr. J. Rodal (talk) 01:46, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
