## What is a probability plot in Minitab?

A probability plot displays each value versus the percentage of values in the sample that are less than or equal to it, along a fitted distribution line. The y-axis is transformed so that the fitted distribution forms a straight line.

**What does a probability plot show?**

The probability plot (Chambers et al., 1983) is a graphical technique for assessing whether or not a data set follows a given distribution such as the normal or Weibull. The data are plotted against a theoretical distribution in such a way that the points should form approximately a straight line.

### How do you analyze a probability plot?

Interpret the key results for Probability Plot

- Step 1: Determine whether the data do not follow the specified distribution.
- Step 2: Visualize the fit of the specified distribution.
- Step 3: Display estimated percentiles for the population.

### What is a good Anderson-Darling value?

The Anderson-Darling statistic measures how well the data follow a particular distribution….What is the Anderson-Darling statistic?

Distribution | Anderson-Darling | P-value |
---|---|---|

Exponential | 9.599 | p < 0.003 |

Normal | 0.641 | p < 0.089 |

3-parameter Weibull | 0.376 | p < 0.432 |

**Can you graph probability?**

Graphically, the probability distribution function is represented by a bar graph, with the x-axis denoting the values that the random variable can take on and the y-axis denoting the probability of each outcome. The probability distribution graph is shown for you on-screen for our example.

**How to calculate probability in normal distribution by MATLAB?**

y = normpdf (x) returns the probability density function (pdf) of the standard normal distribution, evaluated at the values in x. y = normpdf (x,mu) returns the pdf of the normal distribution with mean mu and the unit standard deviation, evaluated at the values in x.
