NegativeBinomialDistribution[n, p]
represents a negative binomial distribution with parameters n and p.
  • The probability for value x in a negative binomial distribution is for non-negative integers, and is zero otherwise. »
  • If n is a positive integer, NegativeBinomialDistribution[n, p] gives the distribution of the number of failures in a sequence of trials with success probability p before n successes occur.
