When we have Bernoulli trials and want to calculate the probability of r successes in n trials where n is large, sometimes we use the normal approximation to the binomial distribution.
Just as before, consider an infinite sequence of Bernoulli trials with probability of success p in every trial.
Therefore, we simulate Bernoulli trials and count the number of failures before the occurrence of the first success.
2, but we preferred to use their special properties and the relationship to Bernoulli trials.
a Standard Uniform U(0,1) variable can be used to model a binary process, that is, a Bernoulli trial.
