What I want involves functions related to the normal distribution. Based on my google research, it appears that SCIPY is a good way to go. That requires NUMPY.   I don't seem to find an install that works for my environment which leads to the questions on this post: Is there an install for my environment and if so, where do I get it? If not, is there another package I should use? Or do I need to bite the bullet and install an earlier version of Python.  Suggestions and comments appreciated. Thanks.

So what exactly went wrong when you tried to install this using commands 
that you haven't given us and got error messages that you also haven't 
given us?
