Excel BINOM.INV Function
The BINOM.INV function returns the minimum value for which the cumulative binomial distribution is greater than or equal to a criterion.
The BINOM.INV function returns a numeric value.
- If the trials argument is not an integer, the BINOM.INV function will truncate it to an integer.
- The #VALUE! error value occurs when any of the arguments is non-numeric.
- The #NUM! error value occurs if:
- the supplied trials argument is < 0
- the supplied probability_s argument is < 0 or > 1
- the supplied alpha argument is < = 0 or > = 1
- The BINOM.INV function is newly introduced in Excel 2010, so it is not available in earlier versions of Excel.
