Return : Return the random samples of numpy array.



Example #1 :

In this example we can see that by using numpy.random.geometric() method, we are able to get the random samples of geometric distribution and return the random samples as numpy array by using this method.

Python3




# import numpy and geometric
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  
# Using geometric() method
gfg = np.random.geometric(0.65, 1000)
  
count, bins, ignored = plt.hist(gfg, 40, density = True)
plt.show()

Output :

Example #2 :

Python3




# import numpy and geometric
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  
# Using geometric() method
gfg = np.random.geometric(0.85, 1000)
  
count, bins, ignored = plt.hist(gfg, 10, density = True)
plt.show()

Output :
