Returns the cumulative lognormal distribution of x, where ln(x) is normally distributed with the parameters mean and standard_dev. Use this function to analyze data that has been logarithmically transformed.

Syntax

LOGNORMDIST ( x , mean , standard_dev )

x is the value at which to evaluate the function.

Mean is the mean of ln(x).

Standard_dev is the standard deviation of ln(x).

Remarks

  • If any argument is nonnumeric, LOGNORMDIST returns the #VALUE! error value.

  • If x 0 or if standard_dev 0, LOGNORMDIST returns the #NUM! error value.

  • The equation for the lognormal cumulative distribution function is:
