<p>Six ways to estimate parameters of the hypergeometric distribution are investigated, and their accuracies are examined comparatively. It is demonstrated that the least-squares sum method is the best one among those tried, and can be applied to real test/debug data for estimating the number of faults still resident in a program after test/debugging. By this method the estimation time can be reduced greatly.</p>
