## Geometric Probability Calculator

More about the geometric distribution probability so you can better use this calculator.

The geometric probability is a type of discrete probability distribution $$X$$ that can take random values on the range of $$[1, +\infty)$$. The random variable $$X$$ is the number of trials required to get the first successes.

### How do you compute the geometric probability

For a value $$x \in [1, +\infty)$$, the geometric probability is computed using the following formula:

$\Pr(X = i) = (1-p)^{i-1} \times p$

Using the above geometric distribution calculator , we can compute probabilities of the form $$Pr(a \le X \le b)$$, of the form $$\Pr(X \le b)$$ or of the form $$\Pr(X \ge a)$$.

Type the appropriate parameters for $$p$$ in the text box above, select the type of tails, specify your event and compute your desired geometric probability.

### Other discrete probability calculators

If instead you need to compute binomial probabilities, you can use our binomial calculator instead. Another notable discrete distribution you may be interested in is the Negative Binomial distribution .

Also, you can use our Poisson distribution probability calculator to deal with any application involving the Poisson probabilities, which are fairly common in lots of applications
