NORMSDIST: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use NORMSDIST in Google Sheets?

NORMSDIST is a function in Google Sheets that calculates the normal distribution for a given set of data. To use NORMSDIST, you first need to input the data that you want to calculate the distribution for. After that, you need to specify the mean and standard deviation of that data. Finally, you need to specify the type of distribution you want to calculate. NORMSDIST can calculate the normal distribution, the Student's t-distribution, and the F-distribution.

What is the syntax of NORMSDIST in Google Sheets?

NORMSDIST is a function in Google Sheets that calculates the normal distribution for a given set of data. The syntax for NORMSDIST is NORMSDIST(x,mean,standard_deviation), where x is the input data, mean is the mean of the data, and standard_deviation is the standard deviation of the data. The function returns a value between 0 and 1, representing the percentage of data that is within the given range.

What is an example of how to use NORMSDIST in Google Sheets?

NORMSDIST is a function in Google Sheets that calculates the standard normal distribution for a given set of values. The function takes two arguments: the first is the minimum value in the set, and the second is the maximum value in the set. The function then outputs a value on the standard normal distribution between 0 and 1. An example of how to use the NORMSDIST function in Google Sheets is below.

In cell D2, the formula =NORMSDIST(A2,B2) is used. This calculates the standard normal distribution for the values in cells A2 and B2. In cell D3, the formula =NORMSDIST(A3,B3) is used. This calculates the standard normal distribution for the values in cells A3 and B3.

When should you not use NORMSDIST in Google Sheets?

NORMSDIST should not be used when the input is not a normal distribution. Additionally, NORMSDIST should not be used when the input is a negative value.

What are some similar formulae to NORMSDIST in Google Sheets?

NORMSDIST is the most basic and common formula for normal distribution, but there are a few other formulas that can be used as alternatives. These alternatives include the NORMSINV, NORMSINV2, and NORMS.PDF formulas. The NORMSINV formula is used to find the inverse of the normal cumulative distribution function, while the NORMSINV2 formula is used to find the inverse of the two-tailed normal cumulative distribution function. The NORMS.PDF formula is used to find the probability density function of the normal distribution.
