      Cumulative Probability (cumulative_probability)

      The cumulative_probability function calculates the probability that a value drawn from a numeric field will be less then or equal to a specific value. The cumulative_probability function takes three parameters:

      1. The numeric field to compute the cumulative probability from

      2. The specific numeric value to compute the cumulative probability for

      3. The sample size

      Sample syntax

      select cumulative_probability(sepal_length_d, 7.7, 150) as cumulative_prob
           from iris

      Result set

      The result set for the cumulative_probability function contains a single record with the calculated cumulative probability. The cumulative_probability function returns the cumulative probability calculation.
