CHISQ.DIST function

Returns the chi-squared distribution.

The chi-squared distribution is commonly used to study variation in the percentage of something across samples, such as the fraction of the day people spend watching television.

Syntax

CHISQ.DIST(x,deg_freedom,cumulative)

The CHISQ.DIST function syntax has the following arguments (argument: A value that provides information to an action, an event, a method, a property, a function, or a procedure.):

  • X     Required. The value at which you want to evaluate the distribution.
  • Deg_freedom     Required. The number of degrees of freedom.
  • Cumulative     Required. A logical value that determines the form of the function. If cumulative is TRUE, CHISQ.DIST returns the cumulative distribution function; if FALSE, it returns the probability density function.

Remarks

  • If any argument is nonnumeric, CHISQ.DIST returns the #VALUE! error value.
  • If x is negative, CHISQ.DIST returns the #NUM! error value.
  • If deg_freedom is not an integer, it is truncated.
  • If deg_freedom < 1 or deg_freedom > 10^10, CHISQ.DIST returns the #NUM! error value.
