### Calculating $\mathbb{E}[N]$ for $N = \displaystyle \min_{n\in \mathbb{N}}\Big\{\sum_{i=1}^{n}{X_i\geq5000\Big\}}$, using Wald's lemma

We can also calculate $\mathsf E(N)$ directly. We let $\mathbb N=\mathbb Z_{\ge 1}$ and assume that $(X_n)_{n\in\mathbb N}$ is a sequence of iid random variables such that \$\mathsf P(X_1 = m) = p (1-p)...
