    This function calculates the ratio of the factorial of a sum of values to the product of factorials.

    Syntax

    MULTINOMIAL(value1,value2,...)

    MULTINOMIAL(array)

    MULTINOMIAL(array1,array2,...)

    Arguments

    The arguments are the values to calculate in the multinomial. Each argument can be a double-precision floating point value, an integer value, or an array of these. Up to 255 arguments may be included. You can use a single array (cell range) instead of a list of values. You can use multiple arrays (cell ranges) as well.

    Remarks

    If an array or reference argument contains text, logical values, or empty cells, the function ignores those values; however, the function includes in calculations cells with the value zero.

    Data Types

    Accepts numeric data for all arguments. Returns numeric data.

    Examples

    MULTINOMIAL(D5,D6,D7,D8)

    MULTINOMIAL(R5C4,R6C4,R7C4,R8C4)

    MULTINOMIAL(1,2,3) gives the result 60
