In this lesson, we are going to talk about the negative binomial distribution. The negative binomial distribution describes a sequence of trials, each of which can have two outcomes, success or failure. In the binomial distribution, we decide ahead of time how many times we are going to flip a coin and then we keep track of the number of heads after it is all over. With the negative binomial distribution, we decide ahead of time how many heads we want to see and we flip for as long as it takes to get that number of heads. You will learn the formula for the negative binomial distribution and you'll see some of its key properties.
