Project description
# udcdsnddistributions package
This package provides the Gaussian distribution and Binomial distribution classes.
* Gaussian  Gaussian distribution class for calculating and visualizing a Gaussian distribution.
Attributes:
mean (float)  representing the mean value of the distribution.
stdev (float)  representing the standard deviation of the distribution.
data_list (list of floats)  a list of floats extracted from the data file.
Methods:
calculate_mean()  Function to calculate the mean of the data set.
calculate_stdev()  Function to calculate the standard deviation of the data set.
plot_histogram()  Function to output a histogram of the instance variable data using matplotlib pyplot library.
read_data_file(filename)  Function to read in data from a txt file. The txt file should have one number (float) per line. The numbers are stored in the data attribute.
pdf(x)  Probability density function calculator for the gaussian distribution
Args:
x (float): point for calculating the probability density function
Returns:
float: probability density function output

list: x values for the pdf plot
list: y values for the pdf plot
__add__(other)  Function to add together two Gaussian distributions
Args:
other (Gaussian): Gaussian instance
Returns:
Gaussian: Gaussian distribution
__repr__()  Function to output the characteristics of the Gaussian instance

data_list (list of floats) a list of floats to be extracted from the data file
p (float) representing the probability of an event occurring
n (int) number of trials
Methods:
calculate_mean()  Function to calculate the mean from p and n
calculate_stdev()  Function to calculate the standard deviation from p and n.
read_data_file(filename)  Function to read in data from a txt file. The txt file should have one number (float) per line. The numbers are stored in the data attribute.

Args:
None
Returns:
float: the p value
float: the n value
plot_bar()  Function to output a histogram of the instance variable data using matplotlib pyplot library.
pdf(k)  Probability density function calculator for the gaussian distribution.
