Is this cheating?

Michelle Wie, on Twitter:

"Ps. Anyone know how to construct a quantile-quantile plot?"

Wie is taking a statistics course at Stanford.

We're kidding about the cheating part, incidentally. But if this will help, Michelle, here's a dictionary definition of quantile: "Each of any set of values of a variate that divide a frequency distribution into equal groups, each containing the same fraction of the total population."
