My Math Forum bit error in transmission

 April 7th, 2010, 11:30 PM #1 Newbie   Joined: May 2008 Posts: 29 Thanks: 0 bit error in transmission probability of bit received in error is p = 0.1, assuming transmissions are independent events, find probability that the third error occurs on 10th bit... well... i can immediately find probability of occuring of 3 errors by using binomial distribution... and i calculated it to be 0.05739.... now question is how to map it further and calculate that error will be at exactly 10th bit....
