For some dataset I have made a histogram, boxplot en qqplot.

http://r.789695.n4.nabble.com/file/n4634093/Naamloos.jpg

Investigate the data with the given functions for making QQ-plots and find

an appropriate location-scale family for the underlying distribution of this

sample. Apart from giving a proper location-scale family, also specify the

member of the location-scale family that is most close to the underlying

distribution of the data, in other words, give estimates for the location

and scale of the underlying distribution of the data.

I think it is from a t-distribution because the qqplot has some slight

tails.

Please some guidance in the right direction: how can I obtain the location,

scale and underlying distribution?

(I am not looking for answering the question but more in general information

about to obtain location, scale and underlying distribution so I can apply

that information myself to answer the questin)
