# Cumulative distribution function - cdf

The (cumulative) distribution function, or probability distribution function, F(x) is the mathematical equation that describes the probability that a variable X is less that or equal to x, i.e.

F(x) = P(Xx)                    for all x

where P(Xx) means the probability of the event Xx.

A cumulative distribution function has the following properties:

1.    F(x) is always non-decreasing, i.e. $//$

2.    F(x) = 0 at x = -∞ or minimum

F(x) = 1 at x = ∞ or maximum
