following arguments: the mean, µ, the variance, σ

For example, check that for a normal distribution,
f(1.0,0.5,2.0) = 0.20755374.

## Normal distribution cdf

The calculator has a function UTPN that calculates the upper-tail normal
distribution, i.e., UTPN(x) = P(X>x) = 1 - P(X<x). To obtain the value of the
upper-tail normal distribution UTPN we need to enter the following values: the
mean, µ; the variance, σ
For example, check that for a normal distribution, with µ = 1.0, σ
UTPN(0.75) = 0.638163. Use UTPN(1.0,0.5,0.75) = 0.638163.
Different probability calculations for normal distributions [X is N(µ,σ
defined using the function UTPN, as follows:
P(X<a) = 1 - UTPN(µ, σ
P(a<X<b) = P(X<b) - P(X<a) = 1 - UTPN(µ, σ
= UTPN(µ, σ
2
,a) - UTPN(µ, σ
P(X>c) = UTPN(µ, σ
Examples: Using µ = 1.5, and σ
P(X<1.0) = 1 - P(X>1.0) = 1 - UTPN(1.5, 0.5, 1.0) = 0.239750.
P(X>2.0) = UTPN(1.5, 0.5, 2.0) = 0.239750.
P(1.0<X<2.0) = F(1.0) - F(2.0) = UTPN(1.5,0.5,1.0) - UTPN(1.5,0.5,2.0)
= 0.7602499 - 0.2397500 = 0.524998.
