Description

momentskewkurtosis calculates the 4 first moments of the distribution of value in data and returns them in m1,m2,m3 and m4, as well as the skew and kurtosis.

Errors

None.

 mean Return mean value of array meanandstddev Return mean and standard deviation of array

Example

```program Example32;

{ Program to demonstrate the momentskewkurtosis function. }

uses math;

var distarray:array[1..1000] of float;
I:longint;
m1,m2,m3,m4,skew,kurtosis:float;

begin
randomize;
for I:=low(distarray) to high(distarray) do
distarray[i]:=random;
momentskewkurtosis(DistArray,m1,m2,m3,m4,skew,kurtosis);

Writeln ('1st moment : ',m1:8:6);
Writeln ('2nd moment : ',m2:8:6);
Writeln ('3rd moment : ',m3:8:6);
Writeln ('4th moment : ',m4:8:6);
Writeln ('Skew       : ',skew:8:6);
Writeln ('kurtosis   : ',kurtosis:8:6);
end.
