Syntax
public override double InverseLeftProbability(
	double P
)

Parameters

P
Type: SystemDouble
The left cumulative probability P, which must lie between 0 and 1.

Return Value

Type: Double
The value x at which LeftProbability(Double) equals P.
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptionP lies outside [0,1].
Remarks

The inverse left probability is commonly called the quantile function. Given a quantile, it tells which variable value is the lower border of that quantile.
