The CHISQ.DIST function returns the chi-squared distribution. The chi-squared distribution is commonly used to study variation in the percentage of something across samples, such as the fraction of the day people are driving cars.

CHISQ.DIST takes 3 required arguments and no optional arguments:

Syntax: CHISQ.DIST(x, deg_freedom, cumulative)

#1)
Using the CHISQ.DIST function:
#2)
The arguments for the CHISQ.DIST function are:
Argument Required? Description
x Required The value at which you want to evaluate the distribution.
deg_freedom Required The number of degrees of freedom.
cumulative Required A logical value that determines the form of the function. If cumulative is TRUE, CHISQ.DIST returns the cumulative distribution function; if FALSE, it returns the probability density function.
#3)
A few more things:
If any argument is nonnumeric, CHISQ.DIST returns the #VALUE! error value.
If x is negative, CHISQ.DIST 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.DIST returns the >#NUM! error value.

Summary

The CHISQ.DIST function returns the chi-squared distribution. The chi-squared distribution is commonly used to study variation in the percentage of something across samples, such as the fraction of the day people are driving cars.
