F.DIST.RT function: Description, Usage, Syntax, Examples and Explanation
What is F.DIST.RT function in Excel?
Syntax of F.DIST.RT function
F.DIST.RT(x,deg_freedom1,deg_freedom2)
The F.DIST.RT function syntax has the following arguments:
- X Required. The value at which to evaluate the function.
- Deg_freedom1 Required. The numerator degrees of freedom.
- Deg_freedom2 Required. The denominator degrees of freedom.
F.DIST.RT formula explanation
- If any argument is nonnumeric, F.DIST.RT returns the #VALUE! error value.
- If x is negative, F.DIST.RT returns the #NUM! error value.
- If deg_freedom1 or deg_freedom2 is not an integer, it is truncated.
- If deg_freedom1 < 1 F.DIST.RT returns the #NUM! error value.
- If deg_freedom2 < 1 F.DIST.RT returns the #NUM! error value.
- F.DIST.RT is calculated as F.DIST.RT=P( F>x ), where F is a random variable that has an F distribution with deg_freedom1 and deg_freedom2 degrees of freedom.
