C OMER ECE 600 Homework 7 1. A message requires N time units to be transmitted, where N is a geometric random variable with pmf p j = (1-a)a j-1 for j=1, 2,…. A single new message arrives during a time unit with probability p, and no new messages arrive with probability 1-p. Let K be the number of new messages that arrive during the transmission of a single message. a. Find the pmf of K. Hint : k n k n k k n - = + - ± ± ² ³ ´ ´ µ
