Random Variables


  There are a number of named distributions as well as three custom distributions that can be defined and evaluated with the add-in. The links below transfer to pages that describe each one and provides formulas defining the distributions, formulas for the mean and variance and examples. The dialog presenting the distribution options is called by choosing the Add Random Variable option from the Random Variables menu. Although the dialog accepts parameter values, these may changed directly on the worksheet. Click on a link below the figure to learn about specific distributions.
