File Name: proof of mean and variance of geometric distribution .zip
I can prove anything by statistics - except the truth.
Nonetheless, there are applications where it more natural to use one rather than the other, and in the literature, the term geometric distribution can refer to either. The geometric form of the probability density functions also explains the term geometric distribution. In short, Bernoulli trials have no memory. This fact has implications for a gambler betting on Bernoulli trials such as in the casino games roulette or craps.

There are three main characteristics of a geometric experiment. The formulas are given as below. The deriving of these formulas will not be discussed in this book. Suppose a game has two outcomes, win or lose. You repeatedly play that game until you lose. All three characteristics are met. Each game you play is a Bernoulli trial, either win or lose.
The geometric distribution is the probability distribution of the number of failures we get by repeating a Bernoulli experiment until we obtain the first success. Consider a Bernoulli experiment , that is, a random experiment having two possible outcomes: either success or failure. We repeat the experiment until we get the first success, and then we count the number of failures that we faced prior to recording the success. Since the experiments are random, is a random variable. If the repetitions of the experiment are independent of each other, then the distribution of , which we are going to study below, is called geometric distribution.
In probability theory and statistics , the geometric distribution is either one of two discrete probability distributions :. These two different geometric distributions should not be confused with each other. Often, the name shifted geometric distribution is adopted for the former one distribution of the number X ; however, to avoid ambiguity, it is considered wise to indicate which is intended, by mentioning the support explicitly.
Mathematics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It only takes a minute to sign up. I know I have to use a simular trick as above with the derivation. I have a proof which follows the approach of Math but it in a slightly different way. It may be useful if you're not familiar with generating functions. However, I'm using the other variant of geometric distribution.

On this page, we state and then prove four properties of a geometric random variable. In order to prove the properties, we need to recall the sum of the geometric series. So, we may as well get that out of the way first. We'll use the sum of the geometric series, first point, in proving the first two of the following four properties. And, we'll use the first derivative, second point, in proving the third property, and the second derivative, third point, in proving the fourth property. Let's jump right in now! To find the variance, we are going to use that trick of "adding zero" to the shortcut formula for the variance.
- Отпусти. - Чатрукьян был совсем мальчишка.
Солнце уже зашло. Над головой автоматически зажглись лампы дневного света. Сьюзан нервничала: прошло уже слишком много времени. Взглянув на Следопыта, она нахмурилась.
Я должен добраться до ангара. Интересно, увидит ли пилот лирджета, что он подъезжает. Есть ли у него оружие. Откроет ли он вовремя дверцу кабины. Но, приблизившись к освещенному пространству открытого ангара, Беккер понял, что его вопросы лишены всякого смысла.
- Она тебе все равно не поверит. - Да уж конечно, - огрызнулся Хейл. - Лживый негодяй. Вы промыли ей мозги.
