# Thread: What does F stand for?

1. ## What does F stand for?

I'm not sure if my last post actually got lost, so I'll try again:

F(1.88) = 0.96

What does F mean?

THANKS!

You must post the entire question exactly as written.
From this fragment it is impossible to comment on your question.

It just says:

(2500-3600)/585=-1.88
F(1.88)=0.96

Same comment: it is still meaningless.

5. Doesn't anybody know what this "F" means?

When you say "it", what exactly is "it" ...?

Is "it" a section of text from a book? Is "it" part of the solution to a question?

Without context,

(2500-3600)/585=-1.88
F(1.88)=0.96
could mean anything. You have been told this several times but still you refuse to provide more information. You're not going to get much help unless you play ball.

My guess is that it's a statistics context and you're dealing with the F-distribution.
