Documentation/How Tos/Calc: CHIDIST function
From Apache OpenOffice Wiki
CHIDIST
Calculates values for a χ^{2}-distribution.
Syntax:
CHIDIST(x; k)
- k is the (positive integer) degrees of freedom for the χ^{2}-distribution.
- x is a number >=0.
- CHIDIST returns the right tail probability for the χ^{2}-distribution:
Issues:
- The draft international standard ODFF calls this function LEGACY.CHIDIST, and defines a new CHISQDIST function. * CHISQDIST is expected for OOo 3.1
- The draft international standard ODFF has no restriction for x, but defines that LEGACY.CHIDIST returns 1 for x ≤ 0.
Example:
CHIDIST(2; 3)
- returns approximately 0.5724.
