7.4.21  Inverse distribution functions: icdf

The icdf command will take as arguments the name of a probability distribution, along with any needed parameters, and return an expression for the inverse cumulative distribution function. This is typically most useful if you evaluate the inverse cumulative function at a specific value by adding it as an argument. If you enter

icdf(normald,0,0.5,0.975)

you will get

0.97998199227
