USING THE COMPUTER

EXCEL

  • Random numbers can be generated from Excel for several different distributions, including the binomial distribution, the Poisson distribution, the uniform distribution, and the normal distribution. To generate random numbers from a particular distribution, begin by selecting the Data tab on the Excel worksheet. From the Analysis panel at the right top of the Data tab worksheet, click on Data Analysis. If your Excel worksheet does not show the Data Analysis option, then you can load it as an add-in following directions given in Chapter 2. From the Data Analysis pulldown menu, select Random Number Generation.
  • In the Random Number Generation dialog box, enter the number of columns of values you want to produce into Number of Variables.
