# How To Use NORMDIST() Function in Google Sheets

Description

Returns the value of the normal distribution function (or normal cumulative distribution function) for a specified value, mean, and standard deviation.

Common questions about the NORMDIST formula include:
What is NORMDIST, and what does it do?
How do you use the NORMDIST formula in Google Sheets?

The NORMDIST formula can be used to calculate the cumulative normal distribution (or probability density) for a given set of parameters. It can be used to determine the likelihood of a specific event, such as the average passing time of a race. Additionally, it can be used to calculate cumulative probabilities, which can then be used to calculate the probability of the occurrence of a random variable within a certain range.

The NORMDIST formula can be commonly mistyped as “Normdist” and “Normal Dist.”

Some common ways the NORMDIST formula is used inappropriately include using the formula with incorrect parameters, calculating the probability of an event outside the range of normal probabilities, and using the formula to measure the likelihood of an extremely unlikely event (such as a coin flipping heads fifty times in a row).

Common pitfalls when using the NORMDIST formula include using an incorrect probability density function, making incorrect assumptions when calculating the parameters, and mistyping the formula.

Common mistakes when using the NORMDIST formula include inputting the incorrect parameters, using an incorrect probability density function, and mistyping the formula.

Common misconceptions people might have with the NORMDIST Formula include thinking it can be used to measure the likelihood of an event with extremely unlikely outcomes, and making incorrect assumptions when calculating the parameters.
