When might you use a geometric probability?

Mar 23rd, 2015

Geometric Probability Distribution is used when:

  • The experiment consists of a sequence of independent trials.
  • Each trial results in one of two outcomes: success, S, or failure, F.
  • The geometric random variable X is defined as the number of trials until the firstS is observed.
  • The probability p(x) is the same for each trial.

Suppose an ordinary die is thrown repeatedly until the first time a "1" appears. The probability distribution of the number of times it is thrown is supported on the infinite set { 1, 2, 3, ... } and is a geometric distribution with p = 1/6.
