Mutually exclusive events are always dependent. Or note that P(A)P(B) = (1/3) (1/3) = 1/9 ≠ 0 = P(A B); thus A, B are dependent .. 4. 0.13 P(A) = ) ( ) | ( 1 j n j j B P B A P ∑ = .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
