# If I post this before I go to bed... (Part 1)

Craps players might get this sooner, but it is just a simple record of "Decisions" on a Craps table.
Each horiztontal row tracks a series of rolls; the series ends with either a "7-out" or the "point" being made.
So far, so easy...

What I'm having trouble with is the following:
As you might know (or guess) the normal distribution is a bell curve like result with (out of 36 roles) 7s being the most frequent (6 events), followed by 6 and 8 (5 each, etc...)
e.g.- see Probability Distribution Table on sheet.

Anyway, I'm trying to find some way to graphically represent 2 things:
1- The normal Bell Curve like distribution of an ideal "X" # of rolls. ("X" = whatever the roll total is to that point. Represented as a perfect distribution.)
2- The actual count of "incidences" of each number thrown.
(Represented, preferably, as vertical bars.)

Thus ennabling me to quickly see discrepancies from normal distribution...

Is this possible?
I hope so!

Thanks,
Ken

Got it!

All I needed was COUNTA/COUNTIF formulas and a chart of the results.

Nothing like a good nights sleep.

Thanks to all who viewed it.
