SF Comments

(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”.
