The Discrete distribution is used to simulate the occurrence of the given number of events only. For instance, it could be the lights of a semaphore, the winners of a horse race, which counter will host the next client, or any other process that returns a limited number of events only.

Say we are modeling the pedestrian flow of a sidewalk that our business display window faces onto. According to internal data we know that every hour between 700 and 1000 people walk past our window. The Random Between distribution may be used to simulate the next hour pedestrian flow: =mmRANDBETWEEN(700, 1000)

The Uniform distribution returns values with an equal probability of occurrence. Say we are modeling the financial sheet of a new store, and we are wondering a |
