triangular distribution
I noticed excel does not have a triangular distribution. Is there a way to
develop a triangular distribution since this is used quite a bit in statistical analysis? I know there are commercial products available but can I do this in the standard Excel?

Hi,
For an Excel formula for generating Probability Distribution Curve for Triangular Distribution for a given set of minimum, maximum, and mode values, see in http://www.techarchive.net/Archive/...408/3207.html Regards, B.

Hi,
If A1, B1, and C1 contain respectively, the minimum, mode, and maximum, of a triangular distribution, and if A3 contains a value x, use the following formulas: For the Probability Density Function, P(x), =MAX(0,IF(A3<$B$1,2*(A3$A$1)/(($C$1$A$1)*($B$1$A$1)),2*($C$1A3)/(($C$1$B$1)*($C$1$A$1)))) and for the Cumulative Distribution Function, D(x) =IF(A3<$A$1,0,IF(A3<$B$1,(A3$A$1)^2/(($C$1$A$1)*($B$1$A$1)), IF(A3<=$C$1,1($C$1A3)^2/(($C$1$B$1)*($C$1$A$1)),1))) Regards, B.
