The NORMDIST function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to return the normal distribution for the specified mean and standard deviation.
The NORMDIST function syntax is:
NORMDIST(x , mean , standard-deviation , cumulative-flag)
x is the value you want to calculate the distribution for, any numeric value.
mean is the arithmetic mean of the distribution, any numeric value.
standard-deviation is the standard deviation of the distribution, a numeric value greater than 0.
cumulative-flag is the form of the function, a logical value: TRUE or FALSE. If cumulative-flag is TRUE, the function will return the cumulative distribution function; if FALSE, it will return the probability mass function.
The values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
