# CHISQ.DIST.RT

Formulas / CHISQ.DIST.RT
Calculate the right-tailed probability for the chi-squared distribution.
`CHISQ.DIST.RT(x,deg_freedom)`
• x - [REQUIRED] the value to evaluate the distribution on
• deg_freedom - [REQUIRED] the number of degrees of freedom

## Examples

• `=CHISQ.DIST.RT(5, 8)`

This would return the probability of the chi-squared distribution with 5 degrees of freedom and a chi-square statistic of 8.

• `=CHISQ.DIST.RT(2, 5)`

This would return the probability of the chi-squared distribution with 2 degrees of freedom and a chi-square statistic of 5.

## Summary

The CHISQ.DIST.RT function returns the right-tailed probability of the chi-squared distribution, which is commonly used in a Ï‡2 test. It will throw an error if any of the arguments are not a number.

• CHISQ.DIST.RT calculates the right-tailed probability for the chi-squared distribution, which is used in a Ï‡2 test.
• The function returns an error value if any argument is not numeric and truncates deg_freedom if it is not an integer.
• CHISQ.DIST.RT also returns the #NUM! error value if deg_freedom is greater than 10^10 or less than 1.
