On the "Independence of Trials-Assumption" in Geometric Distribution
Al-Saleh, Mohammad Fraiwan
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v39 n7 p944-948 Oct 2008
In this note, it is shown through an example that the assumption of the independence of Bernoulli trials in the geometric experiment may unexpectedly not be satisfied. The example can serve as a suitable and useful classroom activity for students in introductory probability courses.
