This function calculates the inverse of the cumulative beta density function.

Syntax

BETA.INV(prob,alpha,beta,lower,upper)

Arguments

This function has these arguments:

Argument

Description

prob

Probability of the distribution

alpha

Alpha parameter of the distribution

beta

Beta parameter of the distribution

lower

[Optional] Lower bound of the interval for x; 0 if omitted

upper

[Optional] Upper bound of the interval for x; 1 if omitted

Remarks

If you omit values for upper and lower, the calculation uses the standard cumulative beta distribution, so that lower is zero and upper is one. This function returns the #VALUE! error value if any argument is nonnumeric.

Data Types

Accepts numeric data for all arguments. Returns numeric data.

Examples

BETA.INV(0.75,B3,C3,2,4)

BETA.INV(0.75,R3C2,R3C3,2,4)

BETA.INV(0.75,9,12,2,4) gives the result 3.0011968805340232
