A statistical word puzzle!


Today's post is a puzzle. Why? Well, my wife loves solving word puzzles, and today is our wedding anniversary.

Last year, I bought her a Jumble® book. This year, I've created a one-of-a-kind scrambled word puzzle just for her. (But you can play, too!)

I created this puzzle by using the SAS/IML RandScramble module from a previous post to scramble the letters of four statistical words. Unscramble each of the four words, and then use the letters in the shaded boxes to form the statistical answer to the cartoon riddle.
