Re: Normalize

Well the standardize formula simply subtracts the second entry from the first and then divides the difference by the third number. Whether a histogram of the transformed data will match some other histogram depends on whether the actual distibution of the two data sets comes from the same family (often assumed to follow the Normal or Gaussian distribution). That's why the second entry to the Standarize function is called the mean, and the third the standard deviation. These would be calculated first from your set of data. All that said, I'm not sure I know what question you are really asking. Does this help any? if not, can you be more explicit in what you want?
