Hypergeometric Distribution With the binomial distribution you sample with replacement and count the number of successes after a set number of trials. But what if you sample without replacement? Now the trials are no longer independent and we can no longer use the binomial to model this situation. We need to look for another type of distribution that will describe these problems.
