Hello! I'm playing with a binomial distribution (p=0.5, n = 10) and I am simulating a few trials with a cumulative table. Is there a way to order the values on the bar chart from smallest to largest instead from 0 to 10 instead of having the bars showing from the tallest to the shortest? See my example here: https://mathigon.org/polypad/eic1D0Dctfc1Q. And also, whilst I'm there, how could I represent a normal distribution (using from random numbers)? Thank you!

Where am I?

We don't have sorting features in tables yet, but will add those at some point. Here is a workaround for now: https://mathigon.org/polypad/Qw61v35jr8QGqw11

I got numbers 0-10 on the cards and moved them into order and then copied that row to make 10 of each. Then, I attached it to a table. Now, when you click randomize, the table stays in order. If you do an "area" chart, you can begin to see the normal distribution. Hope this helps!
