n

An integer representing the size of the sample

M

An integer representing the number of successes in the population

N

An integer representing the size of the population

cumulative

A logical value that determines the form of the function. If cumulative is TRUE, then this function returns the cumulative distribution function; if this argument is FALSE, it returns the probability mass function

Examples

HYPGEOM.DIST(A22,B23,62,1000,C10)

HYPGEOM.DIST(R22C11,R22C12,R34C14,R35C15,R10C5)

HYPGEOM.DIST(2,37,6,100,200) gives the result 0.6079646750428083
