(Lesson 11: Multiplication Rule; 4-4) 4.15 The events “3” and “Hearts” are independent events, because knowing the rank of a card tells us nothing about its suit, and vice-versa. The occurrence of one event does not change our probability assessment for the other event. The rank and the suit of an unknown card are independent random variables, which we will discuss later. Dependent events are events that are not independent. Multiplication Rule for Independent Events

Unformatted text preview: If events A , B , C , etc. are independent, then: P A and B ( ) = P A ( ) ⋅ P B ( ) P A and B and C ( ) = P A ( ) ⋅ P B ( ) ⋅ P C ( ) , etc. Tree Diagram Example 2 Draw three cards from a standard deck with replacement. (“With replacement” means that, after we draw a card, we place it back in the deck before we draw the next card.) Find the probability that we draw an Ace first, a King second, and a King third. Think: AKK sequence....

What students are saying

• 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.

• 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.
