**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.
