NORMSINV: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use NORMSINV in Google Sheets?

NORMSINV is a Google Sheets function 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. To use the NORMSINV function in Google Sheets, enter the following into a cell: =NORMSINV(value)

What is the syntax of NORMSINV in Google Sheets?

NORMSINV is a function in Google Sheets that calculates the inverse of the standard normal cumulative distribution function. The syntax for NORMSINV is NORMSINV(x), where x is the value you want to inverse.

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

NORMSINV is a Google Sheets function that calculates the inverse of the normal cumulative distribution function. This function is used to find the probability of a specific event occurring, given a normal distribution. To use the NORMSINV function in Google Sheets, you must first input the following information:

-The mean of the normal distribution

-The standard deviation of the normal distribution

-The value at which you want to find the inverse probability

Once you have entered this information, hit the "NORMSINV" button and the inverse probability will be automatically calculated. An example of how to use the NORMSINV function in Google Sheets can be found below:

In the example, we are trying to find the inverse probability of a value of 3. We know that the mean of the normal distribution is 5 and the standard deviation is 2. We also know that we want to find the inverse probability at a value of 3. To calculate this, we first enter the following information into the NORMSINV function in Google Sheets:

-The mean of the normal distribution: 5

-The standard deviation of the normal distribution: 2

-The value at which you want to find the inverse probability: 3

Once this information is entered, hit the "NORMSINV" button and the inverse probability will be automatically calculated. In this example, the inverse probability is 0.0668, which means that there is a 6.68% chance of a value of 3 occurring when the normal distribution is taken into account.

When should you not use NORMSINV in Google Sheets?

NORMSINV is not always appropriate for use in Google Sheets. One instance in which it should not be used is when there are only a few data points and the distribution is not normal. In this case, the NORMSINV function will return an incorrect result. Another time when NORMSINV should not be used is when the data is not distributed normally. In this case, the NORMSINV function will also return an incorrect result.
