# Probability Distributions

One of the two types of question in Foretold is the "distribution" type, made for estimating continuous distributions.

Currently a very similar distribution input method is used as with the application Guesstimate. All Guesstimate functions and distributions are supported.

## Basic Input

The recommended way of entering most numbers is by using the basic input. Type

In order to submit a lognormal distribution with a 5th percentile at 10 and a 95th percentile at 30.

If the first number of these two is negative, then the distribution will be normal.

## Function Input

If you would like to pick a specific distribution and it's corresponding parameters, you can use the function input. If you are entering a distribution, then you will need to refer to call a specific distribution. Here are a few common ones available. A longer list is here.
