Calculates values for an F-distribution.


FDIST(x; r1; r2)

r1 and r2, which are positive integers, are the degrees of freedom parameters for the F-distribution.
x must be greater than or equal to 0.
FDIST returns the area of the right tail of the probability density function for the F-distribution, calculating:

FDIST(1; 4; 5)

returns approximately 0.485657.


  • The forthcoming international standard ODFF calls this function LEGACY.FDIST, and defines a new FDIST function.
