Geometric: Experiment and r.v. 2 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. R.v. X=number of trials to the first success X=2 X=6 X=5 X=4 X=3 X=1

Ex: number of parts to first defective 4 The fraction of defective parts is 0.025. An inspector examines each part. She feels like the work is worthwhile when she finds a defective. What is prob of finding first defective on the 5th part. Ans: assume parts are independent. r.v. X = number of parts until the first defective r.v. X  geometric (p=P(“success”)=?) P(X=5) =P(ggggd)=.0226
