  • Geometric Distribution

    A probability distribution of the number of independent trials of a chance experiment it will take until a success. The criteria for a distribution to be geometric are (1) The chance experiment must only have two outcomes (success/failure) per trial, (2) the trials must be independent, (3) there must be a fixed probability of success for each trial, and (4) the variable of interest is the number of trials needed to obtain a "success" for the first time.
