Probability :: discrete :: geometric

Probability :: discrete :: geometric

By means of four spin buttons, the user changes the values of p, the probability of "success" and two values of the discrete random variable X. Various probabilities and the graph with the pdf and cdf are updated automatically. (A pull-down menu allows the user to change the amount by which probability p is stepped up or down.) Click on the image, above left; "how to use" this sheet should be intuitive.
