# A bit of food for later thought

Warning contains some pretty crazy ideas.

And some maths gobbledy goop

So I was playing around with the data in Kale's topic:

This one

So anyone I had a bit of fun plotting a few things. The first one is the average compound value as a function of LK.

(LK on the x axis, value as a fraction of the range on the right)

It reminds me of an arctan function. Or even the Michaelis-Menten equation for ezyme kinetics (lol).

The main thing that I want to point out is, it looks like the average value approaches a certain number as luck increases. By the looks of it, it is about 30% of the range.

Next I look at the random distribution of the compounds. I do not have the best information to work them out exactly, however they are far from symmetric. This makes computing a standard deviation rather troublesome, well graphically anyway. I guess I will have to do it manually when I have a bit more time.

I will say that some look like 1/x whist others look more like Bell curves that are a bit slanted, well skewed.

The most frequent compound it not the average. Sadly I am not incredibly familiar with statistics, so I probably will not go much further into this matter.
