**gamma**distribution is a continuous probability distribution that models right-skewed data. Statisticians have used this distribution to model cancer rates, insurance claims, and rainfall. Additionally, the

**gamma**distribution is similar to the exponential distribution, and you can use it to model the same types of phenomena: failure times.
