Triangular

Transform > Probability Distributions > Triangular

 

Calculates the probability densities, cumulative probabilities, and inverse cumulative probabilities for a Triangular distribution.

The triangular distribution is defined by three parameters, a lower limit a, an upper limit b, and number c, between a and b, called the mode. the probability density function (PDF) has the shape of a triangle in the X/Y plane with verices (a, 0), (b, 0), and (c, y), where y is chosen so that the area of the triangle is 1.
