(tossing 2 coins) P (A and B) = P(A)P(B) Dependence/conditional probability: General rule of mult.

(order matters…putting stuff together in a certain order) Combination: order doesn’t matter, (choosing 3 people for a committee) Ch. 6 Mean=expected value Pgs 186-187 Binomial (P remains the same, only 2 possible outcomes): As of May 1992, 32% of all sport utility vehicles sold in the United States were manufactured by Ford Motor.
