F.DIST(value,degnum,degden,cumulative)

#### Arguments

This function has these arguments:

Argument Description
value Value at which to evaluate the function
degnum Number of degrees of freedom for the numerator; if not an integer, the number is truncated
degden Number of degrees of freedom for the denominator; if not an integer, the number is truncated
cumulative A logical value that determines the form of the function. If cumulative is TRUE, this function returns the cumulative distribution function; if FALSE, it returns the probability density function

#### Data Types

Accepts numeric data for all arguments except cumulative. Returns numeric data.

#### Examples

F.DIST(A1,2,2,TRUE)

F.DIST(R1C1,2,1,TRUE)

F.DIST(16.83975,5,3,TRUE) gives the result 0.9789999175380504
