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

Description

Calculates the inverse of the left-tailed F probability distribution. Also called the Fisher-Snedecor distribution or Snedecor’s F distribution.

Common questions about the F.INV Formula include:
- What is the F.INV Formula?
- What is the syntax of the F.INV Formula?
- What is the significance of each of the parameters in the Formula?
- How does the F.INV Formula calculate its values?

The F.INV Formula can be used to calculate the probability of a standard normal random variable falling between two given values. It returns the cumulative probability of a standard normal random variable lying in the specified region.

The F.INV Formula can be commonly mistyped due to the number of parameters needed for the formula. Common mistakes include missing or reversing the order of the parameters, or incorrectly typing “sum” instead of “F.INV.”

Common ways in which the F.INV Formula is used inappropriately include using it to calculate the probability of non-standard normal random variables, using it to calculate cumulative probabilities where only percentages are applicable, and using it to calculate the probability of a sample mean instead of a random variable.

Common pitfalls when using the F.INV Formula include using it with an inappropriate data set, not properly ordering the parameters of the formula, and not understanding the significance of the parameters.

Common mistakes when using the F.INV Formula include using the wrong data set, mistyping the formula, and not understanding the syntax of the formula.

Common misconceptions with the F.INV Formula include thinking that it is applicable to non-standard normal random variables, thinking that it can calculate sample means, and thinking that it can calculate percentages instead of cumulative probabilities.
