GeometricDistribution[n, p] gives the geometric distribution for the number of trials before the first sucess, where the probability of success in each trial is p.

• This is a discrete distribution.

Examples

Using InstantCalculators

Here are the InstantCalculators for the GeometricDistribution function. Enter the parameters for your calculation and click Calculate to see the result.

This generates a set of random numbers that follow the geometric distribution.

This gives the probability density function for the geometric distribution.
