Hypergeometric Distribution Calculator

The calculator will find the hypergeometric and cumulative probabilities, as well as the mean, variance and standard deviation of the hypergeometric distribution.

If the calculator did not compute something or you have identified an error, or you have a suggestion/feedback, please write it in the comments below.

Your Input

Calculate the various values for the hypergeometric distribution with $$$N = 20$$$, $$$K = 15$$$, $$$n = 12$$$, and $$$k = 8$$$.

Answer

Mean: $$$\mu = n \frac{K}{N} = 12 \frac{15}{20} = 9$$$A.

Variance: $$$\sigma^{2} = n \frac{K}{N} \frac{N - K}{N} \frac{N - n}{N - 1} = 12 \frac{15}{20} \frac{20 - 15}{20} \frac{20 - 12}{20 - 1} = \frac{18}{19}\approx 0.947368421052632.$$$A

Standard deviation: $$$\sigma = \sqrt{n \frac{K}{N} \frac{N - K}{N} \frac{N - n}{N - 1}} = \sqrt{12 \frac{15}{20} \frac{20 - 15}{20} \frac{20 - 12}{20 - 1}} = \frac{3 \sqrt{38}}{19}\approx 0.973328526784575.$$$A

$$$P{\left(X = 8 \right)}\approx 0.255417956656347$$$A

$$$P{\left(X < 8 \right)}\approx 0.0510835913312693$$$A

$$$P{\left(X \leq 8 \right)}\approx 0.306501547987616$$$A

$$$P{\left(X > 8 \right)}\approx 0.693498452012384$$$A

$$$P{\left(X \geq 8 \right)}\approx 0.948916408668731$$$A
