The article presents research which dealt with the mathematical implications of collecting coupons. The concept of geometric distribution was believed to be important to solving coupon collector's problem and cereal box problem. The aim of such problems is to assess it generally and then demonstrate by using several examples. Such problems also provides a most interesting instance of how mathematics can be applied to examine an everyday problem while illustrating the important concept of modeling.
