Considerations when using the NORM.INV function

The NORM.INV formula uses the following arguments:

  1. Probability (required argument) – This is the probability corresponding to normal distribution. It is the value at which we want to evaluate the inverse function.
  2. Mean (required argument) – This is the arithmetic mean of the distribution.
  3. Standard_dev (required argument) – This is the standard deviation of the distribution.
