=AVERAGEA(A1:A50)

Returns the maximum value in a list of arguments.

Returns 0 if no numeric value and no error was encountered in the cell range(s) passed as cell reference(s). Text cells are ignored by MIN() and MAX(). The functions MINA() and MAXA() return 0 if no value (numeric or text) and no error was encountered. Passing a literal string argument to MIN() or MAX(), e.g. MIN("string"), still results in an error.

MAX(Number 1 [; Number 2 [; â€¦ [; Number 255]]])

=MAX(A1;A2;A3;50;100;200) returns the largest value from the list.

=MAX(A1:B100) returns the largest value from the list.

Returns the maximum value in a list of arguments. In opposite to MAX, here you can enter text. The value of the text is 0.

The functions MINA() and MAXA() return 0 if no value (numeric or text) and no error was encountered.

MEDIAN(Number 1 [; Number 2 [; â€¦ [; Number 255]]])

for an odd number: =MEDIAN(1;5;9;20;21) returns 9 as the median value.

for an even number: =MEDIAN(1; 5; 9; 20) returns the average of the two middle values 5 and 9, thus 7.

Returns the minimum value in a list of arguments.

Returns 0 if no numeric value and no error was encountered in the cell range(s) passed as cell reference(s). Text cells are ignored by MIN() and MAX(). The functions MINA() and MAXA() return 0 if no value (numeric or text) and no error was encountered. Passing a literal string argument to MIN() or MAX(), e.g. MIN("string"), still results in an error.

MIN(Number 1 [; Number 2 [; â€¦ [; Number 255]]])

=MINA(1;"Text";20) returns 0.

=MINA(A1:B100) returns the smallest value in the list.

MODE.MULT(Number 1 [; Number 2 [; â€¦ [; Number 255]]])

As the MODE.MULT function returns an array of values, it must be entered as an array formula. If the function is not entered as an array formula, only the first mode is returned, which is the same as using the MODE.SNGL function.

=MODE.MULT(A1:A50)

Returns the most common value in a data set. If there are several values with the same frequency, it returns the smallest value. An error occurs when a value doesn't appear twice.

MODE.SNGL(Number 1 [; Number 2 [; â€¦ [; Number 255]]])

If the data set contains no duplicate data points, MODE.SNGL returns the #VALUE! error value.

Returns the alpha-percentile of data values in an array. A percentile returns the scale value for a data series which goes from the smallest (Alpha=0) to the largest value (alpha=1) of a data series. For Alpha = 25%, the percentile means the first quartile; Alpha = 50% is the MEDIAN.

PERCENTILE(Data;Alpha)

Data represents the array of data.

Alpha represents the percentage of the scale between 0 and 1.

=PERCENTILE(A1:A50; 0.1) represents the value in the data set, which equals 10% of the total data scale in A1:A50.

Returns the Alpha'th percentile of a supplied range of values for a given value of Alpha, within the range 0 to 1 (exclusive). A percentile returns the scale value for a data series which goes from the smallest (Alpha=0) to the largest value (Alpha=1) of a data series. For Alpha = 25%, the percentile means the first quartile; Alpha = 50% is the MEDIAN.

If Alpha is not a multiple of 1/(n+1), (where n is the number of values in the supplied array), the function interpolates between the values in the supplied array, to calculate the percentile value. However, if Alpha is less than 1/(n+1) or Alpha is greater than n/(n+1), the function is unable to interpolate, and so returns an error.

The difference between PERCENTILE.INC and PERCENTILE.EXC is that, in the PERCENTILE.INC function the value of alpha is within the range 0 to 1 inclusive, and in the PERCENTILE.EXC function, the value of alpha is within the range 0 to 1 exclusive.

PERCENTILE(Data;Alpha)

Returns the value of the probability density function for a given value considering the standard normal distribution.

PHI(Number)

Number is the value for which the probability density function is calculated.

=PHI(2.25) returns 0.0317.

=PHI(-2.25) also returns 0.0317 because the normal distribution is symmetrical.

=PHI(0) returns 0.3989.

Calling PHI(Number) is equivalent to calling NORMDIST(Number,0,1,FALSE()) or NORM.S.DIST(Number;FALSE()), hence using the standard normal distribution with mean equal to 0 and standard deviation equal to 1 with the Cumulative argument set to False.

Returns the Poisson distribution.

POISSON(Number; Mean [; C])

Number represents the value based on which the Poisson distribution is calculated.

Mean represents the middle value of the Poisson distribution.

Returns a requested quartile of a supplied range of values, based on a percentile range of 0 to 1 exclusive.

The difference between QUARTILE.INC and QUARTILE.EXC is that the QUARTILE.INC function bases its calculation on a percentile range of 0 to 1 inclusive, whereas the QUARTILE.EXC function bases its calculation on a percentile range of 0 to 1 exclusive.

QUARTILE(Data; Type)

Data represents the range of data values for which you want to calculate the specified quartile.
