The F.INV.RT function returns the inverse of the (right-tailed) F probability distribution, i.e. if p = \text{F.DIST.RT}(x,...), then \text{F.INV.RT}(p,...) = x.  

  • This function was introduced in Excel 2010 and so is not available in earlier versions.
  • The F.INV.RT function replaces the FINV function included in earlier versions of Excel.
