    Fisher’s non-central hypergeometric

    What values can X take in Fisher’s non-central hypergeometric distribution?

    I've tried googling but nothing, thanks.

    The support is the set of values for which the a random variable following the distribution is not 0. So you're looking for the support.
    The thing about the aprameters just says where to pick the parameters...
