    a simple statistics problem

    if T is beta distribution (\alpha,\alpha)
    is it equivalent to any other distribution?

    and how to find the quantiles of it?

    I never heard of symmetric beta having any other name.
    It's defined on (0,1) so unless you invert it you can't do much.
    I bet 1/T is a gamma.
    Do you need an online calulator?
    I know of p-value sites that may help you.
    Or do you want me to transform it via 1/T?
    Then you might get chi-square percentiles and flip them back.
    I've never been asked this question b4.
