GAMMALN: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use GAMMALN in Google Sheets?

The GAMMALN function in Google Sheets calculates the natural logarithm of a number. To use it, enter the number you want to calculate the logarithm for into the function's parentheses, followed by the "=" sign. For example, if you want to calculate the logarithm of 8, you would enter "=GAMMALN(8)" into a cell. The function will return the logarithm of 8, which is 2.0944.

What is the syntax of GAMMALN in Google Sheets?

The syntax of GAMMALN in Google Sheets is: =GAMMALN(number, significance)

Where "number" is the number you want to calculate the gamma function for, and "significance" is the number of decimal places you want to calculate the function to.

What is an example of how to use GAMMALN in Google Sheets?

The GAMMALN function in Google Sheets can be used to calculate the lognormal distribution for a given set of data. To use the function, you first need to input the data for the mean and standard deviation of the distribution. You then need to input the number of data points you want to calculate the distribution for. The function will return the lognormal distribution for the given data.

When should you not use GAMMALN in Google Sheets?

GAMMALN is a function that is used to calculate the natural logarithm of a number. This function should not be used in Google Sheets when the number is less than zero. When the number is less than zero, the function will return a value of #NUM! which is not a valid value.

What are some similar formulae to GAMMALN in Google Sheets?
