consider it as a geometric distribution with probability of success (that is, probability of finding a disease) =
I still am not sure if this is really a geometric distribution:
so, am i supposed to use the pmf ??
that would mean we are calculating for . thats either 3 success or 3 failures.. but we do have (2 successes and 1 failure) and (1 success and 2 faliures) as well. Dont we need to count those? Deriving the pmf using these scenarios is really confusing me.
