# NTTRUNCNORMDIST

Returns the truncated normal distribution for the specified parameters.

## Syntax

NTTRUNCNORMDIST(

• x,
• Min,
• Max,
• Mu,
• Sigma,
• Cumulative

)

#### Parameters

• x is the value for which you want the distribution.
• Min is a lower limit of a support of the distribution $a$.
• Max is a upper limit of a support of the distribution $b$.
• Mu is a parameter the distribution $\mu$.
• Sigma is a parameter the distribution $\sigma\;(>0)$.
• Cumulative is a logical value that determines the form of the function. If cumulative is TRUE, NORMDIST returns the cumulative distribution function; if FALSE, it returns the probability mass function.

## Remarks

• Restrictions of arguments:

$a
$a\leq x\leq b$
