## Beta Prime and F

The comment about Beta Prime and F appears to be incorrect. Although it makes sense that these are related the statement that if b is beta prime, then b*alpha/beta is F can't make sense, since if alpha = beta then you just get b and F distribution is not invariant when you multiply d1 and d2 by constants. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.244.153.18 (talk) 11:31, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

## Cumulative distribution function and excess kurtosis

Dear main authors: as you probably know, the beta-prime distribution is the same as the F-distribution, if one replaces in the latter: ${\displaystyle d_{1}/2\rightarrow \alpha }$, ${\displaystyle d_{2}/2\rightarrow \beta }$, ${\displaystyle d_{1}x/d_{2}\rightarrow x}$. That means that part of the text in the F-distribution-article can be copied and pasted into this article. That's what I did for the CDF and the kurtosis.
