Returns the inverse of the gamma cumulative distribution. If p = GAMMADIST(x,...), then GAMMAINV(p,...) = x.

You can use this function to study a variable whose distribution may be skewed.



Probability     is the probability associated with the gamma distribution.

Alpha     is a parameter to the distribution.

Beta     is a parameter to the distribution. If beta = 1, GAMMAINV returns the standard gamma distribution.


  • If any argument is nonnumeric, GAMMAINV returns the #VALUE! error value.

  • If probability < 0 or probability > 1, GAMMAINV returns the #NUM! error value.

  • If alpha ≤ 0 or if beta ≤ 0, GAMMAINV returns the #NUM! error value.

GAMMAINV uses an iterative technique for calculating the function. Given a probability value, GAMMAINV iterates until the result is accurate to within ±3x10^-7. If GAMMAINV does not converge after 100 iterations, the function returns the #N/A error value.






Description (Result)





Inverse of the gamma cumulative distribution for the arguments (10)
