Each throw of the frisbee can be viewed as a Bernoulli trial in which a success occurs if the dog catches the frisbee an runs away. Thus, the experiment ends on the first success and X has the geometric PMF P X ( x ) = (1- p ) x- 1 p x = 1 , 2 , . . . otherwise (1) (b) The child will throw the frisbee more than four times iff there are failures on the first 4 trials which has probability (1- p ) 4 . If p = 0 . 2, the probability of more than four...
