The CRITBINOM function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to return the smallest value for which the cumulative binomial distribution is greater than or equal to the specified alpha value.
The CRITBINOM function syntax is:
CRITBINOM(number-trials, success-probability, alpha)
number-trials is the number of trials, a numeric value greater than or equal to 0.
success-probability is the success probability of each trial, a numeric value greater than or equal to 0 but less than or equal to 1.
alpha is the criterion, a numeric value greater than or equal to 0 but less than or equal to 1.
The numeric values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
