That got me thinking. I have never thought about the formula for the Gaussian curve before.

Yes it is but I am not sure how. What exact question would it be used for?

I'd like to know too :/

normpdf calculates the probability density function values for a normal distribution of given mean and standard deviation.

For example, if we have a normal distribution with mean 10 and standard deviation 3 and we want to know the value of the probability density at 12, then normpdf(12,10,3) = 0.106483 (at least, that's how it's done on the TI-Nspire calculator).
