    Default How I generate the postive total mean from this java code.It geneate negative mean approaches to infinity

    First, it generates ten random numbers from normal distribution and calculates the mean of ten numbers and stores this in an ArrayList. Similarly, it does this for ten lac times. Then, it gives the total mean of ten lac values which is a positive value like this: 0.000142. But it generates negative values as it approaches to infinity. I want positive values... How I will achieve this task? Someone tell me, thanks

    Might it be that you get a value overflow for the range of valid integer values?
