**Hey guys long time since I've posted on here, got this random question a friend of mine and myself were wondering over.**

1. Homework Statement

1. Homework Statement

A player bets 100 dollars continuously on any number besides 0 (european roulette so 1/37 chance to win). He plays until he wins once and stops playing.

a) Z is the amount of times he plays. What is the distribution of Z?

b) What is the probability of the player winning at least 1000 dollars and the probability of the player losing 1000 dollars?

**2. The attempt at a solution**

I'm not so sure as how to go about this as i don't have any background in statistics and am currently studying calculus. But statistics is on my curriculum after the summer so it would be nice to have a little heads up on what's to come.
