HYPGEOMDIST: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use HYPGEOMDIST in Google Sheets?

HYPGEOMDIST is a function in Google Sheets that allows you to find the probability of an event occurring using a normal distribution. To use HYPGEOMDIST, you first need to enter the mean and standard deviation of the normal distribution. You then need to enter the value of the event you are trying to find the probability of. HYPGEOMDIST will then return the probability of the event occurring.

What is the syntax of HYPGEOMDIST in Google Sheets?

The syntax of HYPGEOMDIST in Google Sheets is as follows: =HYPGEOMDIST(x,mean,sd,type) where x is the value for which you want to find the probability, mean is the mean of the distribution, sd is the standard deviation of the distribution, and type is the type of distribution.

What is an example of how to use HYPGEOMDIST in Google Sheets?

HYPGEOMDIST is a function in Google Sheets that calculates the probability of a given event occurring, using a normal distribution curve. An example of how to use HYPGEOMDIST in Google Sheets would be to calculate the probability of a student's test score falling within a certain range. To do this, you would input the student's test score into one of the function's input cells, and then input the lower and upper bounds of the desired range into the other two cells. HYPGEOMDIST will then calculate the probability that the student's score falls within that range.

When should you not use HYPGEOMDIST in Google Sheets?

The HYPGEOMDIST function in Google Sheets should not be used when the distribution is not normal or when the population size is less than 10. Additionally, the function should not be used if the standard deviation is not known.

What are some similar formulae to HYPGEOMDIST in Google Sheets?

The HYPGEOMDIST function in Google Sheets is used to calculate the the probability of an event occurring using a hypergeometric distribution. There are a few similar formulae that can be used to calculate the same thing. The BINOMDIST function in Google Sheets can be used to calculate the probability of an event occurring using a binomial distribution. The FISHER function in Google Sheets can be used to calculate the probability of an event occurring using a Fisher's exact test. And the ZINV function in Google Sheets can be used to calculate the inverse of the normal cumulative distribution function.
