NORMINV(probability, mean, standard_dev)

Returns the x variable corresponding to less than a particular probability.

probabilityThe probability associated with the distribution.
meanThe arithmetic mean of the distribution.
standard_devThe standard deviation of the distribution.

Remarks

* NORM.INV was added in Excel 2010 to replace this function.
* The normal distribution is a continuous distribution.
* If "probability" < 0, then #NUM! is returned.
* If "probability" > 1, then #NUM! is returned.
* If "probability" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.
* If "mean" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.
* If "standard_dev" = 0, then #NUM! is returned.
* If "standard_dev" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.
* This function uses an iterative technique for calculating the function.
* Given a "probability" value, this function iterates until the result is accurate to within ±3x10^-7.
* If this function does not converge after 100 iterations, then #N/A is returned.
* In Excel 2010 the accuracy of this function was improved.
