Pagination or Media Count:
This report discusses the use of Pearson curves to give approximate percentage points to intractable distributions, when the first four moments or three moments and one end-point are available. It is shown how to fit the curves, and their effectiveness is illustrated with a wide range of examples they are in general shown to give excellent approximations in the long tails of a distribution.
