Calculates the 2 tail cumulative normal distribution function.
The 2 tail cumulative normal distribution function.
Formula: 1 - (1 - normdist(x, mn, sd, 1)) * 2
A baseball shall weigh not less than five nor more than 5 1/4 ounces avoirdupois.
If a shipment has an mn of 5 1/8 oz and sd of .1 oz, what percent are within the specifications
Value | Keystrokes | Display | Description |
---|---|---|---|
5.25 | x | 5.2500 | Stores the x value. |
5.125 | μ | 5.1250 | Stores the mn (mean) value. |
.1 | σ | 0.1000 | Stores the sd (standard deviation) value. |
cdf | 0.7887 | Calculates the cumulative distribution between -x and +x. |
So, about 75%
What should the standard deviation of be so that 99% are within the specifications?
These keystrokes assume the values from example 1.
Value | Keystrokes | Display | Description |
---|---|---|---|
.99 | cdf | .9900 | Stores the cdf value. |
σ | 0.0485 | Calculates the sd value. |
