CHISQ.DIST:
Returns the chisquared distribution
The CHISQ.DIST function returns the chisquared distribution. The chisquared 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)
Using the CHISQ.DIST function:
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. 
• 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.
