Doesn't one >need a sum of rather more variables than two to get this? If the distribution of both is the same what you get is a normal distribution. I was implicitly assuming that c and v would have similar sorts of distribution to each other. Thinking about it more carefully, I now realise that whilst the distribution of c and v is likely to be similar - dominated as it is by variations in company turnover - my initial assumption rested on c and v being independent random variables which they clearly are not. > Paul, were you writing in haste here? > > Yes I was.
