Function HyperGeometric(ProbabilityOfSuccess, NumberOfTries, PopulationSize)

# HyperGeometric¶

The function HyperGeometric draws a random value from a hypergeometric distribution.

HyperGeometric(
ProbabilityOfSuccess,   ! (input) numerical expression
NumberOfTries,          ! (input) integer expression
PopulationSize          ! (input) integer expression
)


## Arguments¶

ProbabilityOfSuccess

A scalar numerical expression in the range $$(0,1)$$.

NumberOfTries

A integer numerical expression in the range $$1,\dots,{PopulationSize}$$.

PopulationSize

A integer numerical expression $$> 0$$.

## Return Value¶

The function HyperGeometric returns a random value drawn from a hypergeometric distribution with a probability of success ProbabilityOfSuccess, number of tries NumberOfTries and population size PopulationSize.

Note

The probability of success ProbabilityOfSuccess must assume one of the values $$i/{size}$$, where $$i$$ is in the range $$1,\dots,{PopulationSize}-1$$.

The HyperGeometric distribution is discussed in full detail in Discrete Distributions of the Language Reference.
