Common Questions About the BETAINV Formula:
• What is the BETAINV formula?
• What does the BETAINV formula do?
• How do I use the BETAINV formula?

How Can the BETAINV Formula be Used Appropriately:
• To calculate the inverse of the Beta cumulative distribution function for a specified alpha, beta, and probability.
• To calculate the inverse of the cumulative distribution function for standard normal distributions.
• To calculate the inverse of the Beta cumulative distribution function for a specified alpha, beta, lower and upper limits.

How Can the BETAINV Formula be Commonly Mistyped:
• Confusing the "LOCATED" parameter with the "Location" parameter.
• Confusing the "PROB" parameter with the "Probability" parameter.
• Accidentally reversing any specified parameters (e.g. alpha and beta).

What Are Some Common Ways the BETAINV Formula is Used Inappropriately:
• Using the BETAINV formula for a different purpose than it was intended.
• Not specifying the correct number of parameters.
• Not entering valid numerical values for the required parameters.

What Are Some Common Pitfalls When Using the BETAINV Formula:
• Not understanding the parameters that are required for the formula.
• Passing invalid parameters to the formula.
• Using incorrect parameters in the calculation.

What Are Common Mistakes When Using the BETAINV Formula:
• Not specifying the required parameters.
• Entering invalid numerical values.
• Not specifying the lower and upper limits when needed.

What Are Common Misconceptions People Might Have With the BETAINV Formula:
• That the BETAINV formula can only be used for Beta cumulative distribution functions.
• That the BETAINV formula requires only two parameters.
• That the BETAINV formula can be used to calculate the inverse of any cumulative distribution function.
