# HYPGEOMDIST

Returns the hypergeometric distribution, i.e., the probability of 'x' successes from 'n' number of draws for a given population 'N' with 'M' number of successes, without replacement of draws.

Syntax

HYPGEOMDIST(x; n; M; N)

x: The number of successes that you want to calculate the probability for. Eg., 3

n: Number of draws without replacement. Eg., 5

M: The number of successes in the finite population. Eg., 12

N: Size of the finite population. Eg., 25

Examples

 Formula Result =HYPGEOMDIST(A2;B2;C2;D2) 0.322981366 =HYPGEOMDIST(A3;B3;C3;D3) 0.238390093 =HYPGEOMDIST(A4;B4;C4;D4) 0.051292449

The given defined name (if any) is invalid. There is a typo in the defined name used in the function. Double quotes are missing for text values in the function. Colon missing in a cell range reference. #VALUE! The given argument's data type is incorrect or invalid. For example, the function =DATE(A1:A3) will return a #VALUE error when a text value is present in the range. #REF! The given cell reference is incorrect or invalid. This error may occur when a cell/range has been deleted, moved, or pasted over. #NUM! The value of x is less than 0, or greater than n or M The value of n is less than 0 or greater than N. The value of M is less than 0 or greater than N. The value of N is less than 0.
