Are you talking about real people or is this a hypothetical case for school?

It's a made-up case for moot court.

am do you have any idea how to do this probability question?

Stress is applied to a 20-in steel bar this is clamped in a fixed position at each end. Let Y = the distance from the left end at which the bar snaps. Suppose Y/20 has a standard beta distribution with (expected value) E(Y) = 10, and (the variance) V(Y) = 100/7

E(Y) = a/(a+b)

V(Y) = ab/((a +b)^2(a + b +1))

What are the parameters to this distribution? I'm looking to alpha (a) and beta (b) but when I try to do the calculation I don't get integer values which I'm pretty sure I need or else I can't do the next part of the question.

Be fortunate you're not in engineering.  Averages in the 40-49 percent range were not uncommon.

Seriously. I remember a particular partial differential equations class had a midterm average just a hair above the freezing point of water in Fahrenheit. :p (I think I got a 70 or something, and was sort of traumatized by that.)

Lowest average score I remember was 36 in Advanced Fluids.  I remember looking at the test and saying "What the fuck?"  I was glad the same applied to practically everyone else in the room.

Coming up with a 25 page research paper outline is pretty difficult!  I don't work well unless I'm under pressure so I've pretty much procrastinated the whole thing and I gotta get the whole thing together today & tomorrow so I can give a 20 min presentation on it for Tuesday and then write the actual paper over thanksgiving.  The longest paper I've ever written before was like 12 pages, lol.  Plus I only write a paper once every 3 years or so, so I completely forget how in between.

I'm writing about the battle between the pursuit of an objective standard vs. subjective storytelling in the courtroom; using books and movies (like Munchausen, The Fall, Ran) about truth embellished in fantasy & various law stuff about the strive for objectivity. 

I like the concept, it's just so broad it's kinda tough making an actual paper about it!  ^^;  But I'm progressing with a laundry list of questions to ask the audience and then answer.  Not going to sleep tomorrow night until I have a full outline with substantial thoughts for each point so I can knock out 20 mins talking about it.  I do assume if I get enough done to accomplish this for tues, the subsequent writing of the paper should be fairly easy since I'll have a ton of material and a strong outline already.  Then again that might be a bad assumption and I could be in the same situation in 2 weeks writing this!  ^^;

Since it's such a broad topic, you should be able to get a good 25 pages out of it.

It's a law & literature class.  Small seminar where we'd read a bunch of cool books each week and talk about them and try to apply their themes to legal topics in some way.  I'm taking it for my substantial writing requirement.  Figured I'd rather write about cool books and entertainment than about dry legal stuff for my one big paper.  Still a paper is a paper and I'll be glad to get this done and never write a paper for school again...hopefully.  I've got 2 semesters left + I gotta take one class in the summer & I worked out my schedule so at least next semester I have 5 classes with finals so no papers.

Yeah, 2nd half of law school right now.  Have almost all my required classes & bar tested classes done after this semester.  Unfortunately most electives at my school are 2 units and I need five 3 unit classes for each remaining semester.  So between the pickings of 3 unit electives & trying to avoid any classes with papers, I'm pretty much taking whatever is left ^^;  I don't have an emphasis so it doesn't really matter.  Will probably take an IP/Patent class in my last semester just in case I ever do videogame related work.
