 # Geometric Distribution Calculator

<-- Enter Total Occurrences (n)
<-- Enter probability of success (p)
<-- OPTIONAL Enter moment number t for moment calculation

### How does the Geometric Distribution Calculator work?

Using a geometric distribution, it calculates the probability of exactly k successes, no more than k successes, and greater than k successes as well as the mean, variance, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis.
Calculates moment number t using the moment generating function
This calculator has 3 inputs.

### What 1 formula is used for the Geometric Distribution Calculator?

1. P(x = n) = p * (1 - p)(n - 1)

### What 7 concepts are covered in the Geometric Distribution Calculator?

distribution
value range for a variable
event
a set of outcomes of an experiment to which a probability is assigned.
geometric distribution
Discrete probability distribution
μ = 1/p; σ2 = 1 - p/p2
mean
A statistical measurement also known as the average
probability
the likelihood of an event happening. This value is always between 0 and 1.
P(Event Happening) = Number of Ways the Even Can Happen / Total Number of Outcomes
standard deviation
a measure of the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of values. The square root of variance
variance
How far a set of random numbers are spead out from the mean
