Hypergeometric Distribution



Hi,
Someone posted this Hypergeometric Distribution formula
C(D,k)*C(ND, nk) / C(N,n)
and a wikipedia link but that link didn't answer this questio:, what is the
formula represented by C?
Thanks

C(N,n) represents the number of combinations of N things taken n at a time. 
C(N,n) = N! / ( (Nn)! x n! ) where ! = factorial n! = n x (n1) x (n2)
x ... x 1.
Also 0!=1
