• is the probability value associated with gamma distribution
• & are the values of the shape and rate parameters.
• gives accurate value of the solution.
• is any positive integer.
• GAMMAINV(),returns the inverse of the gamma cumulative distribution.

Description

• This function gives the inverse value of Cumulative Gamma Probability Distribution.
• This distribution is the Continuous Probability Distribution on the positive real line and it is of the reciprocal of a variable distributed according to the gamma distribution with two parameters & .
• It is used in Bayesian statistics.
• In , is the probability value associated with Gamma Distribution, is called shape parameter and is the rate parameter of the distribution.
• If , then .
• GAMMAINV use the iterating method to find the value of .
• Suppose the iteration has not converged after 100 searches, then the function gives the error result.
• This function will give the error result when
