    Question Gamma Distribution - finding Alpha and Beta

    Hi,

    I have 1000 values from a monte carlo simulation that are positively skewed, and so am trying to find out the 0.5 probability value. I understand Gamma is really good for this, but I'm unsure how I'm meant to calculate alpha and beta based upon the dataset I have?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks,

    B
