Continuous Distributions

Please select the aspect of the Normal distribution you would like to work with:

… …

This is the probability density function (pdf) of a randomly created Normal distribution. In this example, X ~ Normal(μ = 12; σ = 1.6). As with all Normal distributions, the sample space is S = \( \Re \), the real numbers. The height of the plot at a given value of \( x \) represents the *likelihood* of that value and **not** its probability. The density is *not* a probability.
