In this lesson, we are going to learn about the geometric distribution. It looks a lot like the binomial distribution in the initial setup because it is describing a similar situation, but you'll see how the geometric distribution is actually different from the binomial distribution. The idea of the geometric distribution is that you have a sequence of trials. Each one of these trials can have two outcomes, you think of those as being success or failure. The key point about the geometric distribution is that you continue the trials indefinitely until you get the first success. In this lesson, you'll see the application of geometric series to geometric distribution.
