EECS 161 - Introduction to Computer Networking Scott Jordan Local Area Networks / ALOHA UCI University of California, Irvine Coin Tossing: Suppose you toss a coin N times, and each toss is independent of previous tosses. Sup- pose the probability that a single toss is Heads is p . (1) Denote the number of Heads in N tosses by X . Then X is a random variable with a Binomial distribution, namely (2) Denote the number of tosses until you get Heads for the first time by Y . Then Y is a random variable with a Geometric distribution, namely PX x = () N x    p x 1 p Nx = PY y = 1 p y 1 p =
