In Excel 2010, the CHIDIST() function was replaced with the CHISQ.DIST.RT() function, and the CHISQ.DIST() function was added to increase the accuracy of the results. To ensure the backward compatibility of CHISQ.DIST.RT(), the CHIDIST() function is still available.

Syntax. CHISQ.DIST.RT(x,degrees_freedom)

By comparing the observed results with the expected results, you can validate this hypothesis.
