An introduction to the hypergeometric distribution. I briefly discuss the difference between sampling with replacement and sampling without replacement.

I describe the conditions required for the hypergeometric distribution to hold, discuss the formula, and work through 2 simple examples. I also discuss the relationship between the binomial distribution and the hypergeometric distribution, and a rough guideline for when the binomial distribution can be used as a reasonable approximation to the hypergeometric.
