The BETADIST function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to return the cumulative beta probability density function.
The BETADIST function syntax is:
BETADIST(x, alpha, beta, [,[A] [,[B]])
x is the value between A and B at which the function should be calculated.
alpha is the first parameter of the distribution, a numeric value greater than 0.
beta is the second parameter of the distribution, a numeric value greater than 0.
A is the lower bound to the interval of x. It is an optional parameter. If it is omitted, the default value of 0 is used.
B is the upper bound to the interval of x. It is an optional parameter. If it is omitted, the default value of 1 is used.
The values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
