PROJECT DESCRIPTION Using MS Excel, build a worksheet that involves the Normal probability distribution and its graph. Information About This Project MS Excel can be used to simulate the graph of the so - called bell - shaped curve. Steps to Complete this Project STEP 1 Open MS Excel and Design the Normal Curve Worksheet Open MS Excel and copy the worksheet below onto your computer. A B C D 1 - 3.0 - 3.0 2 - 2.5 - 2.5 3 - 2.0 - 2.0 4 - 1.5 - 1.5 5 - 1.0 - 1.0 6 - 0.5 - 0.5 7 0.0 0.0 8 0.5 0.5 9 1.0 1.0 10 1.5 1.5 11 2.0 2.0 12 2.5 2.5 13 3.0 3.0 In cell B1, type the following formula and press enter. = ( 1 / ( SQRT ( 2 * PI ( ) ) ) * EXP ( - ( 1 / 2 ) * A1 ^ 2 ) ) Drag - and - fill this formula from cell B1 to cell B13. The formula that you have entered returns the values corresponding to normal curve probabilities when the mean μ is 0 and the standard deviation σ is 1 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
