Can someone help me with this question...im so lost...thanks in advance... If X has the geometric distribution with parameter p, show that P(X > m + n | X > m) = P(X > n).

Hello, Well, note that And then just write that because if X>m+n happens, X>m happens too.

If X has the geometric distribution with parameter p, show that P(X > m + n | X > m) = P(X > n). try the following link for some explanation memoryless property of geometric distribution mean and variance of the geometric distribution
