# GAMMA

Formulas / GAMMA
Return the gamma function value.
`=GAMMA(number)`
• x - required, the value at which the distribution is evaluated
• alpha - required, a parameter to the distribution
• beta - required, a parameter to the distribution
• cumulative - required, indicates whether the distribution is cumulative or not

## Examples

The gamma function is used to calculate the gamma value of a real number. The Sourcetable function `GAMMA(2.5)` returns the gamma value of 2.5, which is 1.329.

The Sourcetable function `GAMMA(-3.75)` returns the gamma value of -3.75, which is 0.268.

The Sourcetable function `GAMMA(-2)` returns 0 because a negative integer is not a valid argument for the gamma function.

## Summary

The GAMMA function is a mathematical tool used to calculate the gamma function value of a given number.

• The GAMMA function returns the gamma function value, which is calculated using the equation Ð“(N+1) = N * Ð“(N).

What is the GAMMA.DIST function?
The GAMMA.DIST function is used to calculate the gamma distribution. It is used to study variables with a skewed distribution.
What type of variables does the GAMMA.DIST function help to study?
The GAMMA.DIST function helps to study variables with a skewed distribution.
