The HYPGEOMDIST function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to return the hypergeometric distribution, the probability of a given number of sample successes, given the sample size, population successes, and population size.
The HYPGEOMDIST function syntax is:
HYPGEOMDIST(sample-successes , number-sample , population-successes , number-population)
sample-successes is the number of the successes in the given sample, a numeric value greater than 0, but less than the lesser of number-sample or population-successes.
number-sample - the size of the sample, a numeric value greater than 0, but less than number-population.
population-successes - the number of the successes in the population, a numeric value greater than 0, but less than number-population.
number-population - the size of the population, a numeric value greater than 0.
The numeric values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
