# CHISQ.INV function: Description, Usage, Syntax, Examples and Explanation

## What is CHISQ.INV function in Excel?

## Syntax of CHISQ.INV function

CHISQ.INV(probability,deg_freedom)

The CHISQ.INV function syntax has the following arguments:

- Probability Required. A probability associated with the chi-squared distribution.
- Deg_freedom Required. The number of degrees of freedom.

## CHISQ.INV formula explanation

- If argument is nonnumeric, CHISQ.INV returns the #VALUE! error value.
- If probability < 0 or probability > 1, CHISQ.INV 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.INV returns the #NUM! error value.
