How To Use ERFC() Function in Google Sheets

Description

Returns the complementary Gauss error function of a value.

Common Questions about the ERFC Formula:
- What does ERFC stand for?
- How do I use the ERFC formula?
- What types of calculations can the ERFC formula be used for?

How can the ERFC Formula be Used Appropriately:
- The ERFC formula can be used to calculate the cumulative probability of a normal or Gaussian distribution.
- It can be used to find the integral of a function from -infinity to the given parameter.
- The ERFC formula can also be used to calculate Gaussian error functions for statistical processes.

How can the ERFC Formula be Commonly Mistyped:
- ERF instead of ERFC
- NRFC instead of ERFC
- ERFO instead of ERFC
- Other common mistypes are  EFRC, ERCF, EFCR, RFC.

What are some Common Ways the ERFC Formula is Used Inappropriately:
- Using the ERFC formula for non-normal or non-Gaussian distributions.
- Expecting the ERFC formula to calculate probability beyond 1 or less than 0.
- Using the ERFC formula on data that is not trended or grouped.

What are some Common Pitfalls when Using the ERFC Formula:
- Not understanding what the ERFC formula is for and where it should be used appropriately.
- Failing to recognize when the formula is being misused or applied to the wrong data.
- Not accounting for trends or trends within the data.

What are Common Mistakes When Using the ERFC Formula:
- Misunderstanding the parameters of the formula and entering the wrong values.
- Not properly accounting for the shape of the data when using the ERFC Formula.
- Not double-checking the output of the ERFC Formula in order to verify its accuracy.

What are Common Misconceptions People Might Have With the ERFC Formula:
- That the ERFC formula will always give a definite answer and produce a certain result. 
- That the ERFC formula can be used to calculate probabilities outside of a Gaussian/normal distribution. 
- That the ERFC formula can be used to accurately calculate probabilities with non-trended data.
