For an event that occurs with probability p, this function returns the probability of an occurrence given n repetitions. p is numeric and can be a vector.

probability_any(n, p)

## Arguments

n The number of times to repeat the event (independent) The individual probability of the event happening

## Value

The probability of an event with the specified probability, after n repetitions

## Details

The probability that any event p occurs with n repetitions is equal to the reciprocal of the probability that p never occurs. The probability that p never occurs with n repetitions is (1 - p) ^ n. Thus, the probability that any event p occurs after n repetitions is 1 - ( (1 - p) ^ n ).
