Picking Without Replacement Probability Calculator - RGB Studios

Use Replacement Calc to calculate the probabilities of picking a certain number of objects without replacement, such as picking marbles or cards

rgbstudios.org/replacement-calc

Parameters

Enter the following inputs:

  • Total number of items (N)

  • Number of distinct items (m)

  • Number of items picked (n)

  • Number of distinct items picked (k)

Then:

  • Click "Calculate" and view the probability of exactly k distinct items picked, as well as the cumulative probability of less or more successes

  • View the odds of less, than, equal to, or greater than k distinct items picked as a pie chart and bar graph

  • Exactly that many is in blue, less than is in red, greater is in green

Uses

  • Studying statistics

  • Drew too many or too few lands or energy in a tcg

  • Playing games with a standard 52 or 54 card poker deck

Formulas:

When picking n items out of N total items, where m of them are distinct, the odds of picking exactly k distinct items is defined as:

  • P(X = k) = mCk * N-mCn-k / NCn

Where nCx ("n choose x") is defined as

  • nCx = n! / [ x! (n - x)! ]
