1) A variable uses a geometric distribution if: The variable is number of failures before the first success.
Each draw is independent of the previous ones
2)(a) Not geometric, because it contains the number of failures before the first TWO successes.
(b) Not geometric, because the cards are not being replaced.
(c) Geometric
(d) Not geometric, counts the number of successes instead of the number of failures before the first success.
(e) Not geometric, counts the number of successes instead of the number of failures before the first success.

2. A commercial jet aircraft has four engines. Each engine has independent reliability of     92% For safe landing, at least 2 engines of an aircraft need to function       
a. Compute the probability that an aircraft can land safely           
b. If the probability of safe landing must be 98.3%  compute the minimum required  reliability of each engine assuming two engines min out of 4 have to function         
c. If the reliability cannot be improved beyond  92% find the minimum number of engines which are required for safe landing, using probability of b above for safe landing          
d. Which is a better approach to safety? Look at answers to b and c above. Having 2 engines more reliable or increasing the number of engines? Discuss in numbered points bem.
