- Overall chance that A will occur given X chance per attempt and Y number of attempts.

Hey all. I've got next to no education in probability and I was wondering how to figure out the chance of some event occurring after Y number of attempts given X chance of happening per attempt.

For example, if event A has a 0.15% chance of occurring each attempt, and you make, say, 1000 attempts, what is the chance that A will occur?

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks in advance.
