  • Thank you, much appreciated.

  • Would you mind adding the actual function that is used to get the result 10.85081?

  • I did. In R the function is qgamma(.05, 10, 1/2). In excel, the function is GAMMA.INV(0.05, 10, 2).

  • I mean the actual mathematical function. What does the mathematical fucntion that is being used to solve this problem look like??

  • Google ‘gamma inverse cdf’
