# FDIST

FDIST(x, degrees_freedom1, degrees_freedom2)

Returns the probability distribution function for an f distribution (left tailed) (no cumulative).

 x The number from the distribution. degrees_freedom1 The numerator degrees of freedom. degrees_freedom2 The denominator degrees of freedom.

 REMARKS
 * F.DIST was added in Excel 2010 to replace this function and include an option for cumulative probability.* F.DIST.RT was added in Excel 2010 to replace this function.* The f distribution is a continuous distribution.* The f distribution is not symmetrical.* If "x" < 0, then #NUM! is returned.* If "x" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* If "degrees_freedom1" < 1, then #NUM! is returned.* If "degrees_freedom1" = 10^10, then #NUM! is returned.* If "degrees_freedom1" is not an integer, it is truncated.* If "degrees_freedom1" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* If "degrees_freedom2" < 1, then #NUM! is returned.* If "degrees_freedom2" = 10^10, then #NUM! is returned.* If "degrees_freedom2" is not an integer, it is truncated.* If "degrees_freedom2" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* All the values are greater than zero.* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com
