Naor''s distribution, Advanced Statistics

Naor's distribution is the discrete probability distribution which arises from the following model;

Assume an urn contains n balls of which one is red and the remainder is white.

Sampling with the replacement of a white ball (if drawn) by the red ball continues until the red ball is drawn. Then the probability distribution of the needed number of draws,

Y, is

after n - 1 draws urn contains only the red balls and so no more than n draws are needed.
