# HYPGEOMDIST

**Definition/Description of Formula:**

Calculates the probability of drawing a certain number of successes in a certain number of tries given a population of a certain size containing a certain number of successes, without replacement of draws.

**Syntax:**

`HYPGEOMDIST(x, n, M, N)`

- x - The desired number of successes.
`n`

- The number of permitted draws.- N - The total number of successes in the population.
- M - The total size of the population

**Notes **

`BINOMDIST`

describes the probability of drawing a certain number of successes in a certain number of tries given a population of a certain size containing a certain number of successes,*with*replacement of draws.
