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

Description

See NORMINV

-What is a normal inverse (NORM.INV) function?
-What parameters are needed to use this function?
-What does the NORM.INV function do?

How to use NORM.INV formula appropriately:
The NORM.INV formula can be used to calculate a number that is associated with a normal probability distribution given the probability, mean and standard deviation values. The formula uses the syntax, NORM.INV(probability, mean, standard_deviation)

How to commonly mistype the NORM.INV formula:
The most common error when using the NORM.INV Formula is mistyping the parameters; that is, mixing up the order of probability, mean, and standard deviation values.

Common ways the NORM.INV formula is misused:
-Using the NORM.INV formula for values that are not associated with a normal probability distribution
-Using the NORM.INV formula to calculate probability instead of the inverse calculation
-Using the NORM.INV formula to calculate a non-normal probability distribution function

Common pitfalls when using the NORM.INV Formula:
-Using incorrect parameters
-Not double-checking the values that are input in the formula
-Failing to account for the accuracy of the calculation
-Using the same parameters repeatedly over time

Common mistakes when using the NORM.INV Formula:
-Using the wrong probability value or mean and standard deviation values
-Forgetting to use the NORM.INV formula to make a reverse calculation to verify accuracy
-Miscalculating the probability, mean, or standard deviation values
-Using a NORM.INV formula to calculate a non-normal distribution function

Common misconceptions people might have with the NORM.INV Formula:
-Believing that the NORM.INV formula can only be used to calculate normal distributions
-Assuming that the NORM.INV formula can only calculate one probability at a time
-Thinking that NORM.INV is the only formula used to calculate probabilities associated with normal distributions
