Instructions can be found in the Guide to Standard Mathematica Packages
(pp. 250-254) for continuos distributions. The example in page 254 (shown
below) works fine in my MS-Windows environment.

PS. I am interested in applications on probability theory and stochastic
processes and especially on traffic flow theory.



gdist = GammaDistribution[3,1]

CDF[gdist, 10]

cdfunction = CDF[gdist, x]

Plot[cdfunction, {x, 0, 10}]
