Hey I want to raise one issue in *r-stats **geometric distribution *

I have found the dgeom(x,p) which denotes probability density function of
geometric distribution, is not reducing 1 from x.

The original formula for Geometric Distribution PDF is *((1-p)^x-1)*P*.
However, the current r function *dgeom(x, p)* is doing this: *((1-p)^x)*P, *it
is not reducing 1 from x.

I don't know whether this it is kept as it is intentionally, but I thought
of just informing you, in case it's an error, so you can correct it.
