MS Excel: Creating a Bell Curve in Microsoft Excel: A Step-by-Step Tutorial
DescriptionIn this video, the steps to create a bell curve using Microsoft Excel are demonstrated.
A column named "Data" is created. 500 random values are generated between 100 and 200 using the "RANDBETWEEN" formula and entered into the "Data" column. The mean and standard deviation of these 500 values are calculated using the "AVERAGE" and "STDEV.S" functions respectively. Two additional columns, "Sequential Values" and "Normal Distribution", are created. The "Normal Distribution" column is populated with the values of the normal distribution using the mean, standard deviation, and a chosen value (25) as the starting point. The values with zero normal distribution are removed and the "Sequential Values" column is updated with the remaining values. The maximum value among the "Normal Distribution" values is computed and the corresponding value in the "Sequential Values" column is noted (151, which is the mean value). The "Data" and "Normal Distribution" columns are selected and a scatter chart with smooth lines is inserted to create the bell curve.
