Thanks, I didn't think about this

comment Bernoulli trials are run until 3 successful trials are completed. If probability of a success is 0.3 what is the expected number of failures?
Binomial distribution: E[X] = np, if E[X] = 3 and p = 0.3 we get n=10 and the number of failures is 10-3=7. Isn't it strange that this gives the same answer even if this is not in binomial distribution (as far as I understand)?

But I am aware of Pascal's distribution which looks similar to NB. Using that I get that E[x]=n*0.3/0.7 = 3 => n=7. So the number of failures is 7-3=4?

comment 5 cards are drawn. Probability of second or third card being diamonds.
So, if I understand correctly, then the answer simply is 1 - (39*38)/(52*51) ?

comment Continuous probability. Angles
So, the inequalities should look like this: y < x + 84 or y < 84 or x < 84

comment Continuous probability. Angles
What exactly do you mean by positions of second and third points?(it's he angle from the first point, right?) What inequalities those positions must satisfy so that angles would satisfy the conditions?
