 Function Description Returns the average of the absolute deviations of data points from their mean Returns the average of its arguments Returns the average of its arguments, including numbers, text, and logical values Returns the average (arithmetic mean) of all the cells in a range that meet a given criteria Returns the average (arithmetic mean) of all cells that meet multiple criteria. Returns the beta cumulative distribution function Returns the inverse of the cumulative distribution function for a specified beta distribution Returns the individual term binomial distribution probability Returns the one-tailed probability of the chi-squared distribution Returns the inverse of the one-tailed probability of the chi-squared distribution Returns the test for independence Returns the confidence interval for a population mean Returns the correlation coefficient between two data sets Counts how many numbers are in the list of arguments Counts how many values are in the list of arguments Counts the number of blank cells within a range Counts the number of cells within a range that meet the given criteria Counts the number of cells within a range that meet multiple criteria Returns covariance, the average of the products of paired deviations Returns the smallest value for which the cumulative binomial distribution is less than or equal to a criterion value Returns the sum of squares of deviations Returns the exponential distribution Returns the F probability distribution Returns the inverse of the F probability distribution Returns the Fisher transformation Returns the inverse of the Fisher transformation Returns a value along a linear trend Returns a frequency distribution as a vertical array Returns the result of an F-test Returns the gamma distribution Returns the inverse of the gamma cumulative distribution Returns the natural logarithm of the gamma function, Γ(x) Returns the geometric mean Returns values along an exponential trend Returns the harmonic mean Returns the hypergeometric distribution Returns the intercept of the linear regression line Returns the kurtosis of a data set Returns the k-th largest value in a data set Returns the parameters of a linear trend Returns the parameters of an exponential trend Returns the inverse of the lognormal distribution Returns the cumulative lognormal distribution Returns the maximum value in a list of arguments Returns the maximum value in a list of arguments, including numbers, text, and logical values Returns the median of the given numbers Returns the minimum value in a list of arguments Returns the smallest value in a list of arguments, including numbers, text, and logical values Returns the most common value in a data set Returns the negative binomial distribution Returns the normal cumulative distribution Returns the inverse of the normal cumulative distribution Returns the standard normal cumulative distribution Returns the inverse of the standard normal cumulative distribution Returns the Pearson product moment correlation coefficient Returns the k-th percentile of values in a range Returns the percentage rank of a value in a data set Returns the number of permutations for a given number of objects Returns the Poisson distribution Returns the probability that values in a range are between two limits Returns the quartile of a data set Returns the rank of a number in a list of numbers Returns the square of the Pearson product moment correlation coefficient Returns the skewness of a distribution Returns the slope of the linear regression line Returns the k-th smallest value in a data set Returns a normalized value Estimates standard deviation based on a sample Estimates standard deviation based on a sample, including numbers, text, and logical values Calculates standard deviation based on the entire population Calculates standard deviation based on the entire population, including numbers, text, and logical values Returns the standard error of the predicted y-value for each x in the regression Returns the Student's t-distribution Returns the inverse of the Student's t-distribution Returns values along a linear trend Returns the mean of the interior of a data set Returns the probability associated with a Student's t-test Estimates variance based on a sample Estimates variance based on a sample, including numbers, text, and logical values Calculates variance based on the entire population Calculates variance based on the entire population, including numbers, text, and logical values Returns the Weibull distribution Returns the one-tailed probability-value of a z-test
