The T.DIST function is one of the statistical functions. Returns the Student's left-tailed t-distribution. The t-distribution is used in the hypothesis testing of small sample data sets. Use this function in place of a table of critical values for the t-distribution.
The T.DIST function syntax is:
T.DIST(x, deg-freedom, cumulative)
x is the value at which the function should be calculated.
deg-freedom is the number of degrees of freedom, an integer greater than or equal to 1.
cumulative is a logical value (TRUE or FALSE) that determines the function form. If it is TRUE, the function returns the cumulative distribution function. If it is FALSE, the function returns the probability density function.
The values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
To apply the T.DIST function,
- select the cell where you wish to display the result,
