HYPGEOM.DIST(sample_s, number_sample, population_s, number_population, cumulative)

Returns the probability distribution functon OR the cumulative probability function for a hypergeometric distribution.

sample_sThe number of successes in the sample.
number_sampleThe size of the sample.
population_sThe number of successes in the population.
number_populationThe size of the population.
cumulativeA logical value indicating the type of function to use:
False = probability distribution function (equal to)
True = cumulative probability function (equal to or less than)

* This function was added in Excel 2010 to replace the HYPGEOMDIST function.
* The hypogeometric distribution is a discrete distribution
* If "cumulative" = False / 0, then the height of the bell shaped curve at "x" is returned. This uses the probability mass function
* If "cumulative" = True / 1, then the area under the curve to the left of "x" is returned. This uses the cumulative probability function
