## Fifteen normal components grouped over eighty intervals

#### Source:

A total of 820 observations were generated by computer to follow the distribution

1/15 N(5, 1) + 1/15 N(10, 1) + ... + 1/15 N(75, 1)

where N(m
,s
) denotes a normal distribution with mean m
and standard deviation s
.

#### Remarks:

This example illustrates the maximum number of components (15) and the maximum number of grouping intervals (80) allowed by MIX.
