AP Statistics Chapter 7/8 – Discrete, Binomial and Geometric Rand. . There are two geometric probability functions on the TI/84, geometpdf and geometcdf. You drop your toast and as we all know toast has a 75% chance independent Bernoulli trials until (and geometcdf(p,k) gives the probability that it takes k or. In general, we see that all but the last roll are not fours and so have a probability of 5/6 and the In this case we use the cumulative density function geometcdf.

What is the probability that it takes him no more than 4 shots? To log in and use all the features of Khan Academy, please enable JavaScript in your browser.

And so then click Enter, click Enter again, and there you have it, it’s about 0. And so we could define some random variable X this is a geometric random variable as being equal to the number of picks until we get a king. This page has been translated by MathWorks. If you’re seeing this message, it means we’re having trouble loading external resources on our website. So this is approximately equal to 0.

The variable of interest is the number of trials required to obtain the first success. Click the button below to return to the English version of the page. In plainer language, it solves a specific type of often-encountered probability problem, that occurs under the following conditions:.


Video transcript – [Instructor] What we’re going to do in this video is learn how to use a graphing calculator, in particular a TI Other MathWorks country sites are not optimized for visits from your location.

Consider the opposite probability to the one we’re interested in, the probability that it will not take “at most N trials”, that is, the probability that it will take more than N trials. Well this would be the probability that our geometric random variable X is equal to five and you could actually figure this out by hand, but the whole point here is to think about how to use a calculator and there’s a function called geometpdf which stands for geometric probability distribution function, where what you have to pass it is the probability of success on any given trial, one out of 13, and then the particular value of that random variable that you want to figure out the probability for, so five right over there.

And for this geometric random variable, what’s the probability of success on each trial? I keep picking cards from a standard deck until I get a king. So we go to 2nd, distribution, I click up and there we have it geomet cumulative distribution function, press Enter, one out of 13 chance of success on any trial. However, we can take a shortcut to arrive at a much simpler expression for geometcdf.


Up to and including nine, and then Enter. This command is used to calculate cumulative geometric probability. To solve, determine the value of the cumulative distribution function cdf for the geometric distribution at x equal to 3. Overview Command Index Random command! Something does not work as expected? But that would take a while, even if I used this function right over here.

Trial Software Product Updates. Cumulative geometric probability greater than a value. But let’s just see how it works, what this probability is actually going to gfometcdf to.

Geometric cumulative distribution function – MATLAB geocdf

When we replace the cards if they are not a king. So this is the probability that X is less than 10 or I could say this is equal to the probability that X is less than or equal to nine.

Chapter 17 Answers to questions 15, 16, 17, 18 and So let’s get the calculator out again. Select a Web Site Choose a web site to get gemetcdf content where available and see local events and offers. If you’re using any other TI Texas Instrument calculator it’ll be very similar in order to answer some questions dealing with geometric random variables.

You will also need to know these formulas!
