HypergeometricDistribution

HypergeometricDistribution[n,  ,  ] gives the hypergeometric distribution for the number of successes out of a sample of size n, from a popultion of size  containing  successes.

• The hypergeometric distribution HypergeometricDistribution[n,  ,  ] is used in place of the binomial distribution for experiments in which the n trials correspond to sampling without replacement from a population of size  with  potential successes.

Using InstantCalculators

Here are the InstantCalculators for the HypergeometricDistribution function. Enter the parameters for your calculation and click Calculate to see the result.

This generates a set of random numbers that follow the hypergeometric distribution.

This gives the probability density function for the hypergeometric distribution.

This finds a value from the cumulative distribution function for the hypergeometric distribution.
