CHISQ.INV.RT function: Description, Usage, Syntax, Examples and Explanation
What is CHISQ.INV.RT function in Excel?
Syntax of CHISQ.INV.RT function
CHISQ.INV.RT(probability,deg_freedom)
The CHISQ.INV.RT 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.RT formula explanation
- If either argument is nonnumeric, CHISQ.INV.RT returns the #VALUE! error value.
- If probability < 0 or probability > 1, CHISQ.INV.RT returns the #NUM! error value.
- If deg_freedom is not an integer, it is truncated.
- If deg_freedom < 1, CHISQ.INV.RT returns the #NUM! error value.
Given a value for probability, CHISQ.INV.RT seeks that value x such that CHISQ.DIST.RT(x, deg_freedom) = probability. Thus, precision of CHISQ.INV.RT depends on precision of CHISQ.DIST.RT. CHISQ.INV.RT uses an iterative search technique. If the search has not converged after 64 iterations, the function returns the #N/A error value.
