## Explanation of NORM.S.DIST Function

• It is one of the built-in functions in Microsoft Excel.
• This function returns the standard normal distribution.
• NORM.S.DIST Function returns values for the standard normal probability density function (PDF), standard normal cumulative distribution function (CDF).
• This distribution considers mean value as 0 and the standard deviation value as 1.

## Syntax

• Here, you will see the syntax of the NORM.S.DIST function.
• To apply this function on your spreadsheet, you have to select a cell and enter the formula in the following format.
• Once you enter the formula, just click on the button to get the result.

=NORM.S.DIST(z, cumulative)

Arguments Explanation:

• z – The input value to which you want to find the distribution.
• Cumulative – The boolean value that represents the form of the function. If it is TRUE, this function returns the cumulative distribution function (CDF). If it is FALSE, it returns the probability density function (PDF).

Note:
If the argument z is non-numeric values such as letters, and symbols, then this function returns #VALUE! Error.

## Examples

Let’s see some examples to make you understand how NORM.S.DIST function will work.

• In the below screenshot, you can see the input ranges in Column B & E, its output CDF values are listed in Columns C and PDF values are displayed in Column F.
• To find CDF values, you have to give boolean value as TRUE.
• In the below screenshot, you can see the output PDF values in Column G. To get PDF values, you need to give the boolean value as FALSE.
• If the argument z is non-numeric values such as letters, and symbols, then this function returns #VALUE! Error.
