hello i have some issues about the negative binomial distribution

the help in the calculator doesnt specify what are the parameters that i need in the negbinomial function.

it says that there are a n,k, and x.

i want to know what values the function negbinomial (n,k,x) need to reproduce the answer thanks

The Help information is insufficient here.

n = the number of successes, including the last one.

k = the number of failures

x = probability that an individual trial is a succes.

So the total number of trials is n+k.

Negbinomial (n,k,x) gives the probability of observing the nth success at the (n+k)th trial.
