- (1) General. As the hypergeometric distribution is a discrete probability distribution, I believe it is more usual to discuss its probability mass function rather than referring to a probability density function.
- (2) Summary, 1st sentence. Suggest re-word as follows – “Calculates values from either the probability mass function or the cumulative distribution function for the hypergeometric distribution”.
- (3) Summary, 2nd sentence. Suggest re-word as follows – “The hypergeometric distribution is a discrete probability distribution that describes the probability of a particular number of successes in a sequence of draws from a finite population without replacement”.
- (4) Returns, 1st sentence. Suggest re-word as follows – “Returns a real number which is the hypergeometric distribution value for the given arguments.”.
- (5) Arguments, general. For all the non-negative integer values, what happens if you pass a non-integer value or non-numerics?
- (6) Arguments, X. Change “results” to “successes”?
- (7) Arguments, Successes. Change “results” to “successes”.
- (8) Additional details. Probably clearer if we change “If Cumulative is FALSE()” to “For the probability mass function”, and “If Cumulative is TRUE()” to “For the cumulative distribution function”.
- (9) Additional details, last line. Change “hyper geometric distribution” to “the hypergeometric distribution”.
- (10) Examples, 1st example. Insert “the” before “function” and change “probability density function” to “the probability mass function”.
- (11) Examples, 2nd example. Insert “the” before both “cumulative” and “hypergeometric”.
