 number1 The first number. number2 (Optional) The second number.

 REMARKS
 * The Kurtosis of a [[Probability Distribution]] indicates how much data resides in the tails.* This function characterises the relative 'peakedness' or 'flatness' of a distribution compared with the normal distribution.* The arguments can be either arrays, cell references or named ranges that contain numbers.* If an array or reference argument contains text, logical values, or empty cells, those values are ignored; however, cells with the value zero are included.* If there are fewer than four data points, then #DIV/0! is returned.* If the standard deviation of the sample equals zero, then #DIV/0! is returned.* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.* You can use the SKEW function to return the skewness of a distribution based on a sample.* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com* For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com
