    Hi everyone!

    I really need someone's help. I'm doing my maths IA on the probability of golf putts. I've got data on my putting consistency at 1 meter, 1.5 meters and 2 meters. I have calculated this as a percentage. 1 meter is 56.6%, 1.5 meters is 51.6% and 2 meters is 43.3%.

    Then, I have data on how many putts it takes per distance up to 16 meters. I also have this data from professional golfers. My graph looks like this:

    Now, I have no idea what to do next, or how to do it? Do I find the standard deviation for a reason i do not know? Do I find the normal distribution?

    My other question is, how do I link the two sets of data? I'm really stuck...

    Thank you in advance for your help!
