Pedro Acosta Assignment#1

My name is Pedro Acosta. I am currently studying for a career in Computer Science. Statistics w/ Probability is important for my career because 1) it’s required and 2) it helps in a way with coding. It also helps because Computer Science is basically a language, but with numbers. With Computer Science, I could create games using the “language” we learn, which are mostly numbers.
