Geometric Distribution experiment: Conduct independent trials. The outcome on each trial is success with probability p and failure with probability 1-p. Stop at the first success. { } S = s, fs, ffs, fffs, ffffs, fffffs, . .. random variable: r.v. X = number of trials until the first success possible values X = 1, 2 . ... probability distribution function ( 29 f x P X x p p x ( ) ( ) = = = - - 1 1 x = 1,2 . ... parameter p=P(success on a trial) mean and variance: ( 29 E X p V X p p ( ) ( ) = = - 1 1 2
