Remarks

The beta distribution is commonly used to study variation in the percentage of something across samples, such as the fraction of the day people spend watching television.

  • If any argument is nonnumeric, BetaDist returns the #VALUE! error value.
  • If alpha ≤ 0 or beta ≤ 0, BetaDist generates an error value.
  • If x < A, x > B, or A = B, BetaDist generates an error value.
  • If you omit values for A and B, BetaDist uses the standard cumulative beta distribution, so that A = 0 and B = 1.
