were twelve specific s.d's with varying permutation frequencies:
s.d. 0 0.5 1 1.5 0.58 0.82

s.d. 0.96 1.16 1.28 1.41 1.73 1.29
freq. 48 12 24 24 6 24
The total sum of s.d's was 271.24 for a mean of 1.06 and
a std.dev. for the population =0.92. It is clear that no regular
curve can illustrate the results.
In case anybody wonders, let me mention that the mean std.dev.
for all 35 combinations was 0.88
I don't have the computer capability to sample 12345
and much less 123456 that would apply to dice.
If somebody feels inclined to try it ,please let us know.

Why stop at no spaces in "numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4"
or "numbered 1,2,3 and 4" whenyoucangothewholeway

Thankyouforyourconstructive nitpicking. As you can tell
prooofreading is not my strong suit.
Have a good day.
