## Hypergeometric Distribution Calculator

Calculate probabilities and percentiles for a hypergeometric distribution.

**Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):**

**What is a hypergeometric distribution, and why is it important?**- A hypergeometric distribution models the probabilities of drawing specific items from a finite population without replacement. It's crucial in statistics when dealing with scenarios involving sampling without replacement, such as drawing cards from a deck.

**What is the formula for calculating hypergeometric distribution probabilities?**- The formula for calculating the probability of observing
**k**successes in a sample of size**n**, drawn from a population of size**N**with**K**successes, in a hypergeometric distribution, is:

- Where
**N**is the total population size,**K**is the number of successes in the population,**n**is the sample size, and**k**is the number of observed successes in the sample.

- The formula for calculating the probability of observing
**How do I interpret hypergeometric distribution probabilities?**- Hypergeometric distribution probabilities represent the likelihood of obtaining a specific number of successes in a sample drawn without replacement from a finite population. It's particularly useful in cases where the sample size is small relative to the population.
