Solution attached. I do not have interactive charting tool as I am using Designer 2018.2. So I tried Scatterplot tool. The plot is not bad.

 

BTW, @JoeM, beside Alteryx Help, is there a place that I can find more explanation on the meaning of Seed in the tool configuration? Thank you so much.

I didn't stray from the norm on this one, I built the same workflow as most others.

It had been a while since I used the

simulation sampling tool,

so nice to get familiar with it again.

I had to play around with the math some, but here is what I came up with.

Took a different route than many others (and the solution proposed by @JoeM ) - used a python tool as an excuse to learn it.    Seemed to work :-)

Figuring out how to do the actual summary proved to be trickier than I thought!
