What is BINOM.DIST.RANGE function in Excel?
Syntax of BINOM.DIST.RANGE function
The BINOM.DIST.RANGE function syntax has the following arguments.
- Trials Required. The number of independent trials. Must be greater than or equal to 0.
- Probability_s Required. The probability of success in each trial. Must be greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal to 1.
- Number_s Required. The number of successes in trials. Must be greater than or equal to 0 and less than or equal to Trials.
- Number_s2 Optional. If provided, returns the probability that the number of successful trials will fall between Number_s and number_s2. Must be greater than or equal to Number_s and less than or equal to Trials.
BINOM.DIST.RANGE formula explanation
- If any arguments are outside of their constraints, BINOM.DIST.RANGE returns the #NUM! error value.
- If any arguments are non-numeric values, BINOM.DIST.RANGE returns the #VALUE! error value.
- The following equation is used:
- In the equation above, N is Trials, p is Probability_s, s is Number_s, s2 is Number_s2, and k is the iteration variable.
- Numeric arguments are truncated to integers.

|=BINOM.DIST.RANGE(60,0.75,48)||Returns the binomial distribution based on the probability of 48 successes in 60 trials and a 75% probability of success (0.084, or 8.4%).||0.084|
|=BINOM.DIST.RANGE(60,0.75,45,50)||Returns the binomial distribution based on the probability of between 45 and 50 successes (inclusive) in 60 trials and a 75% probability of success (0.524, or 52.4%).||0.524|
