Probability Distribution Functions

(Revised 2011-07-01: Fixed problem with Chi-square for very large chi-square and degrees of freedom. Thank you Heinz-Jurgen!)


This screen computes the probability distribution functions and their inverses for four common statistical distributions.

Normal (Gaussian)

z
p

Note: p is the area in the two tails of the distribution


Student t

t
d.f.
p

Note: p is the area in the two tails of the distribution


Chi Square

ChiSq
d.f.
p

Note: p is a "one-tailed" area (from ChiSq to infinity)


Fisher F

F
d.f.1 (num)
d.f.2 (denom)
p


Note: p is a "one-tailed" area (from F to infinity)
