Probability Distributions

Transform > Probability Distribution

 

Probability Distributions lets you calculate the values of a probability density function (pdf), cumulative probabilities, or inverse cumulative probabilities for 10 different data distributions. You can calculate probabilities for the following distributions:

Normal

Chi-Square

t

Beta

Gamma

Logistic

Binomial

Poisson

Geometric

Negative Binomial

Exponential

F

LogNormal

Triangular

Uniform

Weibull

 

 

Example

The following example is for a normal distribution; however, the method is similar for other distributions.

The dataset contains information on the year, the two teams in the world series (an American and National League Champion), whether the American League (AL) or National League (NL) won the game, and the AL and NL winning at home or away percentage.
