Data Type

Description

Arg1

Required

Variant

X_range - the range of numeric values of x with which there are associated probabilities.

Arg2

Required

Variant

Prob_range - a set of probabilities associated with values in x_range.

Arg3

Required

Double

Lower_limit - the lower bound on the value for which you want a probability.

Arg4

Optional

Variant

Upper_limit - the optional upper bound on the value for which you want a probability.

Return Value

Double

  • If any value in prob_range ≤ 0 or if any value in prob_range > 1, PROB returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If the sum of the values in prob_range ¹ 1, PROB returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If upper_limit is omitted, PROB returns the probability of being equal to lower_limit.

  • If x_range and prob_range contain a different number of data points, PROB returns the #N/A error value.
