**Syntax:** **GAMMA( X)**

*X* = a numeric value

**GAMMA** returns the value of the Euler's gamma function
evaluated for values of , and less than or equal to
approximately 171 (less on a few computers with limited
mathematics capabilities). Gamma is a continuous
function whose value for integer arguments *N* is (N1
factorial). The function is given by:

**Examples:**

**GAMMA**(5) = 24

**GAMMA**(1.59) = 0.89243

**GAMMA**(L38) = Error - **GAMMA**, floating exception, where
L8 = 175

**Excel function:** *N/A*
