    1. A jar contains n chips. Suppose that a boy successively draws a chip from the jar, each time replacing the one drawn before drawing another. This continues until boy draws a chip that he has previously drawn before. Let X denote the number of draws, and compute its probability mass function.

    2. Let X be a negative binomial random variable with parameters r and p, and let Y be a binomial random variable with parameters n and p. Show that P{X>n}=P{Y<r}
