Returns the gamma distribution. You can use this function to study variables that may have a skewed distribution. The gamma distribution is commonly used in queuing analysis.

GAMMA.DIST takes 4 required arguments and no optional arguments:

Syntax: GAMMA.DIST(x, alpha, beta, cumulative)

The arguments for the GAMMA.DIST function are:
Argument Required? Description
x Required The value at which you want to evaluate the distribution.
alpha Required A parameter to the distribution.
beta Required A parameter to the distribution. If beta = 1, GAMMA.DIST returns the standard gamma distribution.
cumulative Required A logical value that determines the form of the function. If cumulative is TRUE, GAMMA.DIST returns the cumulative distribution function; if FALSE, it returns the probability density function.
