This is a stats problem.
Twenty percent of all trucks undergoing a certain inspection will fail the inspection. Assume that trucks are independently undergoing this inspection, one at a time. The expected number of trucks inspected before a truck fails inspection is...?

I belive this is a geometric probability problem, but I don't know how to solve it. Please help.
