Use this Monte Carlo simulation calculator tool to estimate probabilities and forecast outcomes based on random sampling.

### Monte Carlo Simulation Calculator

This Monte Carlo Simulation Calculator allows you to define a range of values, a threshold, and the number of simulations to estimate the probability that a randomly selected value within the defined range will meet or exceed the threshold.

#### How To Use

**Number of Simulations:**Enter the number of simulations to run. The more simulations, the more accurate the result.**Low Range Value:**Enter the lower bound of the range from which random values will be sampled.**High Range Value:**Enter the upper bound of the range from which random values will be sampled.**Threshold Value:**Enter the value that the randomly generated numbers are compared against to determine success.- Click the
**Calculate**button to perform the simulation. - The
**Result**field will display the estimated probability that a randomly generated number within the defined range will meet or exceed the threshold.

#### How It Works

The Monte Carlo method uses repeated random sampling to obtain numerical results. In this calculator:

- We define a range [lowRange, highRange] and a threshold value.
- We run a number of simulations (numSimulations).
- For each simulation, a random value is generated within the range.
- If the random value meets or exceeds the threshold, it is counted as a success.
- The result is the ratio of successful trials to the total number of trials, indicating the probability.

#### Limitations

While Monte Carlo simulations can provide good approximations, they are not exact and depend on the number of simulations run; higher numbers yield more accurate results but take longer to compute. Additionally, this implementation assumes uniform distribution within the range and does not account for other distributions or real-world complexities.
