# How To Use F.DIST.RT() Function in Google Sheets

Description

Calculates the right-tailed F probability distribution (degree of diversity) for two data sets with given input x. Alternately called Fisher-Snedecor distribution or Snedecor's F distribution.

Common Questions
• What is the F.DIST.RT formula?
• What types of data does the F.DIST.RT formula accept?
• What are the parameters of the F.DIST.RT Formula?
• What is the output of the F.DIST.RT Formula?

How to Use Appropriately
• The F.DIST.RT formula can be used to calculate the cumulative probability distribution for a given data set.
• The F.DIST.RT formula requires two parameters, the value and degrees of freedom, to calculate the cumulative probability distribution for the given data set.
• The output of the F.DIST.RT formula is the cumulative probability result to the given value.

How to Mistype
• The F.DIST.RT formula is commonly mistyped as “F DIST RT” or “F DIST. RT”.
• Other misspellings are D.DIST.TR, F.DITS.RT, F.DST.RT.

Ways Used Inappropriately
• The F.DIST.RT formula should not be used inappropriately as a method to calculate standard deviation, mean, or median of a given data set.
• The F.DIST.RT formula should not be used inappropriately to calculate a probability result for a discrete random variable.

Common Pitfalls
• Incorrectly entering a negative number as the value parameter for the F.DIST.RT formula.
• Not entering sufficient parameters into the F.DIST.RT formula to generate an output.
• Incorrectly entering non-numerical data as the parameters for the F.DIST.RT formula.

Common Mistakes
• Incorrectly entering a negative number for the degrees of freedom parameter during the calculation of the F.DIST.RT formula.
• Incorrectly entering zero for either parameter of the F.DIST.RT formula.
• Not properly understanding the output of the F.DIST.RT formula.

Common Misconceptions
• Believing that the F.DIST.RT formula can be used to calculate standard deviation, mean, or median.
• Believing that the F.DIST.RT formula can be used to calculate a probability result for a discrete random variable.
