NORM.S.DIST: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use NORM.S.DIST in Google Sheets?

NORM.S.DIST is a function in Google Sheets that calculates the standard deviation of a set of data. To use it, you first need to enter the data into a Google Sheet. Then, in the cell where you want the standard deviation to appear, type in "=NORM.S.DIST(". followed by the cell range that contains the data. Finally, hit "Enter" to calculate the standard deviation.

What is the syntax of NORM.S.DIST in Google Sheets?

NORM.S.DIST is a function in Google Sheets that calculates the standard deviation of a set of data. The syntax of the function is NORM.S.DIST(x,mean,standard_deviation). The function takes three arguments: x, the set of data to calculate the standard deviation for; mean, the mean of the set of data; and standard_deviation, the standard deviation of the set of data.

What is an example of how to use NORM.S.DIST in Google Sheets?

NORM.S.DIST can be used in Google Sheets to calculate the standard deviation of a set of data. To use NORM.S.DIST, you first need to enter the data that you want to calculate the standard deviation for into a Google Sheet. Once the data is in a Google Sheet, you can then use the NORM.S.DIST function to calculate the standard deviation. The NORM.S.DIST function takes two arguments: (1) the range of data that you want to calculate the standard deviation for and (2) the number of data points in the range. The function will then return the standard deviation for the data.

When should you not use NORM.S.DIST in Google Sheets?

NORM.S.DIST should not be used in Google Sheets when the input values are not normally distributed. The function will return an incorrect result if the input values are not normally distributed.

What are some similar formulae to NORM.S.DIST in Google Sheets?

The NORM.DIST function in Google Sheets is used to calculate the normal distribution of a given set of data. There are a few similar formulae that can be used to calculate different types of distributions. The most similar function to NORM.DIST is the NORM.INV function, which is used to calculate the inverse of the normal distribution. The other similar functions are the NORM.P.DIST function, which calculates the probability density function of the normal distribution, and the NORM.P.INV function, which calculates the inverse of the normal distribution for a given probability.
