    Gaussian distribution question

    Hello all,

    please help me with this problem.

    say if I have 2000 units for a category A that is to be made in time frame of 10 months.
    i was wondering if we can make something in excel to create a Gaussian distribution for these 2000 units over 10 months. X axis scale being 1 month.
    would there be a generalized equation to fit a well distributed curve for such kind of data??

    Thank you in advance

    99.7% of the values should fall between -3 & 3, so rescale that interval to be between 0 & 10 and you are done.
