NORMSINV: Excel Formulae Explained

How do you use NORMSINV in Excel?

NORMSINV is a built-in function in Excel that calculates the inverse of the standard normal cumulative distribution function. This function is used to find the probability that a given value falls within a given range. The syntax for the NORMSINV function is: =NORMSINV(x, mean, standard_deviation). x is the value for which you want to find the probability, mean is the mean of the standard normal distribution, and standard_deviation is the standard deviation of the standard normal distribution.

What is the syntax of NORMSINV in Excel?

NORMSINV is a function in Excel that calculates the inverse of the standard normal distribution. The syntax for NORMSINV is as follows: =NORMSINV(x) where x is the value for which you want the inverse.

What is an example of how to use NORMSINV in Excel?

NORMSINV is a function in Excel that calculates the inverse of the normal cumulative distribution function. The NORMSINV function takes a single argument, which is the normal cumulative distribution function value that you want to inverse. The function returns the value at the given percentile. For example, if you want to find the value at the 95th percentile, you would use the NORMSINV function with the value 0.95.

When should you not use NORMSINV in Excel?

NORMSINV is not recommended for use in Excel when the expected value (x) is greater than 1,000,000 or when the standard deviation (s) is greater than 100. When x is greater than 1,000,000, the NORMSINV function will return the #NUM! error. When s is greater than 100, the NORMSINV function will return the #VALUE! error.

What are some similar formulae to NORMSINV in Excel?

NORMSINV is a function in Excel that calculates the inverse of the standard normal distribution. There are a few other formulae in Excel that can calculate similar things. The NORMSDIST function calculates the standard normal distribution, and the INV function calculates the inverse of a function. These functions can be used to calculate things like confidence intervals and p-values.
