Suppose we conduct a
negative binomial experiment
which results in one, and only one,
success. The probability that a negative binomial experiment will
result in only one success is referred
to as a geometric probability and is denoted by
g(x; p). The formula for geometric probability is
Geometric Probability Formula.
Suppose a negative binomial
experiment consists of x
trials and results in one success.
If the probability of success on an individual trial is p
then the geometric probability is:
g(x; p) = p * qx - 1
