Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

 

This function calculates the F probability distribution, to see degrees of diversity between two sets of data.

Syntax

F.DIST(value,degnum,degden,cumulative)

Arguments

This function has these arguments:

Argument

Description

value

Value at which to evaluate the function

degnum

Number of degrees of freedom for the numerator; if not an integer, the number is truncated

degden

Number of degrees of freedom for the denominator; if not an integer, the number is truncated

cumulative

A logical value that determines the form of the function. If cumulative is TRUE, this function returns the cumulative distribution function; if FALSE, it returns the probability density function

Data Types

Accepts numeric data for all arguments except cumulative. Returns numeric data.

Examples

F.DIST(A1,2,2,TRUE)

F.DIST(R1C1,2,1,TRUE)

F.DIST(16.83975,5,3,TRUE) gives the result 0.9789999175380504
