I need help with a Mathematics question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
In a game of roulette, there are 38 slots for a ball to drop into when it is rolled around the rim of a revolving wheel: 18 red, 18 black, and 2 green. What is the probability that the first time a ball drops into the red slot is on the 8th trial (in other words, suppose you are betting on red every time-what is the probability of losing 7 straight times before you win the first time)?
