    Gaussian Probability Density Function

    Below is a Guassian probability density function:

    E ^-(x-m) / (2s)
    e = Eulers Constant, m = sample mean, s = standard deviation


    However something is apparently wrong with the above equation. I am in need of an understanding of what a Gaussian probability function actually is, and then maybe I can decipher (with your help) what is wrong the above equasion. Below is the actual question:

    The integral of a probability density function must be equal to 1.
    So you'll have to multiply it by a constant in order to make the integral 1.
