Hi

I have a data set to which I want to fit a normal distribution and to determine the parameters mu(mean) and sigma (standard deviation).

I tried this way:

FindFit[data,PDF[NormalDistribution[mu,sigma],x],{mu,sigma},x]

but the normal distribution curve with this parameters doesn't match to the data at all.

Am I doings something wrong? Is there another way to do the fitting?
