HYPGEOM.DIST

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 (or 0) = [[probability distribution function]] (equal to)
True (<> 0) = [[cumulative probability function]] (equal to or less than)

REMARKS
* This function was added in Excel 2010 to replace the HYPGEOMDIST function and include an option for probability distribution.
* The hypogeometric distribution is a [[discrete distribution]]
* If "cumulative" = False, then the height of the curve at "x" is returned.
* If "cumulative" = True, then the area under the curve to the left of "x" is returned.
