F.INV function: Description, Usage, Syntax, Examples and Explanation
What is F.INV function in Excel?
Syntax of F.INV function
F.INV(probability,deg_freedom1,deg_freedom2)
The F.INV function syntax has the following arguments:
- Probability Required. A probability associated with the F cumulative distribution.
- Deg_freedom1 Required. The numerator degrees of freedom.
- Deg_freedom2 Required. The denominator degrees of freedom.
F.INV formula explanation
- If any argument is nonnumeric, F.INV returns the #VALUE! error value.
- If probability < 0 or probability > 1, F.INV returns the #NUM! error value.
- If deg_freedom1 or deg_freedom2 is not an integer, it is truncated.
- If deg_freedom1 < 1, or deg_freedom2 < 1, F.INV returns the #NUM! error value.
