Enter the value 0 as a literal in cell A10. In cell A11, enter the formula =A10+1. Copy the formula in cell A11. Select cells A12–A19. Paste. 3. In cell B10, enter a spreadsheet formula that expresses the equation shown in cell B9. In cell B10, type the formula =5+1*A10.

Copy the contents of cell B10. Select cells B11–B19. Paste.

The formula =NORMINV(RAND(),$B$4,$C$4) tells the spreadsheet to draw a random cumulative probability between 0 and 1 (the RAND() portion of the formula) from a normal distribution that has a mean given in cell B4 and a standard deviation given in cell C4. The formula returns the inverse of this probability; it changes the cumulative probability into an actual number from the distribution. Excel will return a value, which is the height of the individual. You’ll note that this formula is embedded within a ROUND formula, which consists of two parts that are separated by a comma.
