# NEGBINOMDIST

### Definition of NEGBINOMDIST

Calculates the probability of drawing a certain number of failures before a certain number of successes given a probability of success in independent trials.

### Sample Usage

`NEGBINOMDIST(4,2,0.1)`

`NEGBINOMDIST(A2,A3,A4)`

### Syntax

`NEGBINOMDIST(num_failures, num_successes, prob_success)`

`num_failures`

- The number of failures to model.`num_successes`

- The number of successes to model.`prob_success`

- The probability of success in any given trial.

### Notes

`NEGBINOMDIST`

models the negative binomial distribution, which is related to the binomial distribution except that the number of trials is varaible whereas the number of successes is fixed.
