The CHISQ.INV function returns the inverse of the left-tailed probability of the chi-squared distribution. The chi-squared distribution is commonly used to study variation in the percentage of something across samples.
The CHISQ.INV function syntax has the following arguments:
- Probability (required argument) – This is the probability associated with the chi-squared distribution.
- Deg_freedom (required argument) – This is the number of degrees of freedom. It must be an integer between 1 and 1010.
Example: Let’s look at some Excel CHISQ.INV function examples and explore how to use the CHISQ.INV function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:
Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following CHISQ.INV examples would return:
- 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.
