Example: Let’s look at some Excel QUARTILE.EXC function examples and explore how to use the QUARTILE.EXC function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:
Suppose we are given the revenue figures below:
QUARTILE.EXC can return the first quartile, second quartile, and third quartile, as shown below:
Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following QUARTILE.EXC examples would return:
- If array is empty, QUARTILE.EXC returns the #NUM! error value.
- If quart is not an integer, it is truncated.
- If quart ≤ 0 or if quart ≥ 4, QUARTILE.EXC returns the #NUM! error value.
MIN, MEDIAN, and MAX return the same value as QUARTILE.EXC when quart is equal to 0 (zero), 2, and 4, respectively.
