# HYPGEOM.DIST Function

The HYPGEOM.DIST 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 HYPGEOM.DIST function syntax is:

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

where

sample_s 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_s.

number_sample - the size of the sample, a numeric value greater than 0, but less than number_pop.

population_s - the number of the successes in the population, a numeric value greater than 0, but less than number_pop.

number_pop - the size of the population, a numeric value greater than 0.

cumulative - is a logical value (TRUE or FALSE) that determines the function form. If it is TRUE, the function returns the cumulative distribution function. If it is FALSE, the function returns the probability mass function.

The numeric values can be entered manually or included into the cells you make reference to.
