Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The distribution of the number of independent Bernoulli trials performed up to and including the rth success. The probability that the number of trials, x, is equal to k is given by P(x=k)=k-1Cr-1prqk-rThe mean and variance are r/p and rq/p2 respectively. See also geometric distribution.
