Intermediate Mathematics - Sampling without replacement

Sampling without replacement

Consider a population that is finite, that is, it is of a given size so
that the number of items is countable.

Consider a population that contains two different kinds of items.

Examples of this type of population include a box containing both red and
green balls, or a group of people with both males and females, or a set of
cards which are numbered so as to include both odd and even numbers.

Choose a random sample from this population without replacement. [1] The
number, X, of a given kind of item in the sample is known as a
hypergeometric random variable. [2]
