An engineer wants to generate a few columns of random normal data to demonstrate the variability in a process. The process has a mean of 10 and a standard deviation of 2. The engineer generates 5 columns of data from a normal distribution, with 40 rows in each column.

To get the same sample as in the table below, set the random generator base to 1, before you generate the random sample. Choose and enter `1`.

- Choose .
- In Number of rows of data to generate, enter
`40`. - In Store in column(s), type
`C1 C2 C3 C4 C5`. - In Mean, enter
`10`. - In Standard deviation, enter
`2`. - Click OK.

The columns of random data are stored in the worksheet.
