In this lesson, we are going to be discussing the glamorously named hypergeometric distribution. First you'll see the situation where you would use the hypergeometric distribution. Then you'll learn the definition: the hypergeometric distribution describes choosing a committee of n men and women from a larger group of r women and N-r men. This is an unordered choice, without replacement. There are a lot of parameters in the formula for this distribution, and once you understand them, it'll be easier for you to memorize the formula. We are also going to go over some key properties of the hypergeometric distribution.
