    Probability question






    in part a) i know that it involves binomial theorem but i don't know the number of bet he placed before he won the game so how can i find loss or gain.

    i come with this equation W=-50(y-1)+50

    W ----> NET GAIN FOR ISSAC

    Y------> Number of bet he placed

    I guess geometric distribution will be fine for this problem.
