Step-by-step explanation:

A probability is the number of desired outcomes divided by the number of total outcomes.

pmf of X.

Probability of each outcome, 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 white balls drawn.

Before the trials, you are equally as likely to get the black ball in the 1st trial(0 white balls drawn) to the 5th trial(4 white balls drawn). So this is an uniform distribution with

Thus, the pmf is:
