    Before providing the solution to your problem, let me provide some general results.

    Hyper geometric Distribution: Suppose a box contains N balls of which M are purple and N- M are gold balls. From this box n balls are drawn at random and X denotes the number of purple balls drawn.
    Clearly X is a random variable which can take the values 0,1,2,..., n ( n ≤ M). The probability distribution of this random variable is called Hyper geometric distribution and its probability function is given by

    This hyper geometric ...
