While looking through all of the probability-related postings here, I came across a lot of references to hypergeometric distribution. Can any of the experts here please summarize the scope of hyp. distribution that is covered in the GMAT?

Thanks.

Most questions I have seen are of this type:

There are 3 red balls, 4 green balls and 5 yellow balls.
If 4 balls are selected, what is the probability of selecting exactly 2 yellow balls?

numerator is 5C2 x 7C2
denominator is 12C4

prob is (5C2 x 7C2) / 12C4

Is this a correct application of the formula? Please advise.
