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

Returns the probability of getting less than or equal to a particular value in a hyper geometric distribution (finite population).

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:
True = cumulative probability function
False = probability mass function

* Added in Excel 2010.
* This function replaces the HYPGEOMDIST function.
* The hypo geometric distribution is a discrete distribution.
