    Hi. Has anyone tried to build Poisson calculator? I don't see Poisson function in available functions list, so I wonder what is the easiest way to do the calc. Of course I can build it from the scratch, but I also don't see factoriel function, so it would be painfull process to do entire calc manually...

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I searched for it, but I've found multiple results. I think it has the same formula, but can you please confirm if it's the same here: http://www.endmemo.com/statistics/poisson.php.

    Thank you!

    Hi. Thanks for reply!

    Yes, it is the calculator.

    Calculation itself is not the problem, there is a formula and one just needs to follow it; though, as I need about 20 fields, I just wondered if there is an easier way.

    But nevermind, in the meantime, I started building the calculator, you can see it here: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/42325043228345 , I have checked, and it gives the same results as the calculator you mentioned, so it means it works correctly.

    I created one field, and then duplicated it and adjusted formulas isnide, so it's not as difficult as I thought - I did not notice "Duplicate" function in the beginning.

    Thanks for looking into this issue anyway! :)

    Yes, of course you can, you're welcome! You just pay attention to the purpose of calculator - I'm building this one to calculate probability of certain number of goals in football match, based on expected number of goals.

    Hey,

    just came accross this... I personally really like the following calculator for poisson distributions: https://www.plotgraphs.com/mathtools/poisson-distribution/ It is straight forward. If you later want to translate the obtained probability in significance level you can also check out the significance calculator there..
