Try pasting the following into a fresh session << "Statistics`NormalDistribu\tion`" ndist = NormalDistribution[0, 1] pdf = PDF[ndist, x] Plot[pdf, {x, -3, 3}] My guess is that someplace in the notebook before you tried this example, you gave x a specific value causing the Plot function to fail. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
