In This Topic

This function calculates the cumulative beta distribution function.

BETADIST(*x*,*alpha*,*beta*,*lower*,*upper*)

This function has these arguments:

Argument | Description |
---|---|

x |
Value at which to evaluate the function, between the values of lower and upper |

alpha |
Alpha parameter of the distribution |

beta |
Beta parameter of the distribution |

lower |
[Optional] Lower bound of the interval for x; 0 if omitted |

upper |
[Optional] Upper bound of the interval for x; 1 if omitted |

If you omit values for *upper* and lower, the calculation uses the standard cumulative beta distribution, so that *lower* is zero and *upper* is one.

Accepts numeric data for all arguments. Returns numeric data.

BETADIST(3,B3,C3,2,4)
