# NORM.DIST

Formulas / NORM.DIST
Calculate values and areas for the normal probability density function and the normal cumulative distribution function.
`NORM.DIST(x,mean,standard_dev,cumulative)`
• X - required, the value for which you want the distribution
• mean - required, the arithmetic mean of the distribution
• standard_dev - required, the standard deviation of the distribution
• cumulative - required, a logical value that determines the form of the function

## Examples

• `=NORM.DIST(A2,A3,A4,TRUE)`

The NORM.DIST function is used to calculate the cumulative distribution function (CDF) or probability mass function (PMF) of a given set of terms. This will return the cumulative distribution function for the terms in A2, A3, and A4.

• `=NORM.DIST(A2,A3,A4,FALSE)`

This will return the probability mass function for the terms in the given order.

## Summary

The NORM.DIST function is a useful tool in statistics, as it calculates the normal distribution. It is used in hypothesis testing and has many applications.

• The NORM.DIST function returns values for the normal probability density function (PDF) and the normal cumulative distribution function (CDF)
• The output of the PDF and CDF distributions are drawn using the bell-shaped curve
