Transform > Probability Distributions > Geometric


Calculates probabilities, cumulative probabilities, and inverse cumulative probabilities for a Geometric distribution.

The Geometric distribution is the probability distribution of the number of failures before the first success. It is supported on the set {0, 1, 2, 3,...}
