# Negative hypergeometric distribution

Template:Probability distribution In probability theory and statistics, the hypergeometric distribution is a discrete probability distribution that describes the probability of ${\displaystyle k}$ successes in ${\displaystyle n}$ draws without replacement from a finite population of size ${\displaystyle N}$ containing a maximum of ${\displaystyle K}$ successes. This is in contrast to the binomial distribution, which describes the probability of ${\displaystyle k}$ successes in ${\displaystyle n}$ draws with replacement.
