**It sounds kinda like he wants to know how the IQ test score information was processed to get those graphs. Not sure.**

thank you Palynka. very well spoken.

yes i want to know how they generate the ses versus mean scores of standard distributions, re: iq scores unfairily distributed, and flatten out those curves; to make the intersection graphs happen. also what it means... i mean it certainly can't be about money and lifestyle choices. *dances happy dance or two*

i can give page numbers, but there are a plethora of them around the middle of the book.

is it just raw statistics or do i need differential equations to make those measures appear standard. really that is my basic question here. i don't see how calculus , by itself, could cut it.

**If your question is serious, and which it certainly does not appear to be so, then you are asking how do we explain one categorial group performing on a test that measures some form of intelligence better than another categorial group and avoiding assigning the reason for the difference purely on the categorizations. **
yessir, the question is very serious. and i know enough about "beginning" statistics, the standard distribution and the guassian distribution to realize this. and yes i have read almost 1/3 of the bell curve, can't believe how stupid some people are when criticizing this work.

**The other point (in my opinion) is that since there's generally far more variation ***within* these groups than *between* groups, even if there is a systematic difference it's pretty irrelevant for most purposes.
thank you. i also consider it uncontrived and blatant garbage.
