The FDIST function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to return the (right-tailed) F probability distribution (degree of diversity) for two data sets. You can use this function to determine whether two data sets have different degrees of diversity.
The FDIST function syntax is:
FDIST(x, deg-freedom1, deg-freedom2)
x is the value at which the function should be calculated. A numeric value greater than 0.
deg-freedom1 is the numerator degrees of freedom, a numeric value greater than 1 and less than 10^10.
deg-freedom2 is denominator degrees of freedom, a numeric value greater than 1 and less than 10^10.
The values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
To apply the FDIST function,
- select the cell where you wish to display the result,
- click the Insert function icon situated at the top toolbar,
or right-click within a selected cell and select the Insert Function option from the menu,
or click the icon situated at the formula bar,
