Graph description: Figure 3. Log10 transformed serum triglyceride measurements in cord blood from 282 babies and Normal curve with same mean and standard deviation

Histogram of Log 10 transformed Triglyceride with superimposed Normal distribution curve. The histogram is roughly symmetrical and the Normal curve fits it well. In the histogram, the lowest class is –0.9 to –0.9, the highest class is 0.2 to 0.3, modal class is –0.4 to –0.3. The Normal curve has its mode about –0.33 and would reach the horizontal axis at about –0.9 and 0.3.
