number of packet be x(given)

probability of error=0.6

the average number of retransmission number=500(given)

500=x+0.6*x+0.6*0.6*x+0.6*0.6*0.6*x+.............................................infinite GP


x=200 packet

Packet without error prob=0.4

In 100 packets 40 packets are reaching safely

To reach 500 safely 500/40 = 8

Total attempts 8*100=800
