comment Using an inequality to select elements from a list and then plotting the results
Okay, this is what I did: I took the absolute value of x to rid of the negative values. I tried doing LogLogPlot and I received an error. So this is what I did LogPlot[f[Abs[logr], t], {t, 0, Max[logr]}] Is this correct, or did I do this wrong?

Oh, right. So let's say we remove those negative x values, then how would I continue from there?

Andy or anyone, What if I wanted to take the log of the resulting values and plot it with the log of the x values? How would I do that? Thank you guys so much for helping me!

OOH! That seems simple also! Now what if I wanted to take the log of the resulting values and plot it with the log of the x values? How would I do that?

Thanks :) I got it!

Ooh, my confusion lies in the := Mean[UnitStep[logr - x]] part. Could you explain what it is doing for me?

Andy, I don't think this is what I'm trying to do, but I greatly appreciate you trying to help. What I wanted to do is find all values in logr that is greater than the first value in x (so I essentially count however many values are larger than x), and then divide by the length of logr (like a probability). And then repeat with the next value in x.

comment Using an inequality to select elements from a list and then plotting the results
Right. So let's say the max value was .05, then I want to find count all values in logr that are greater than .05, and then divide how ever many numbers I found that were greater than .05 by Length[logr]. But instead of using just the max value, I want to do it for all listed values in x.

What I'm trying to do is find typical values of logr, which i denoted x. And then count which values of logr are greater than x. I didn't know how to find "typical values" so I tallied all of the rounded values and am going to use those.

comment Trying to plot this probability
Thank you guys for your help! I really appreciate it. Colin, I was also confused about how I was supposed to go about this. But all my professor said was to plot the given equation above and to play around with the alpha values.. I really appreciate everyone's help though!
