Unformatted text preview: isjoint, then P (A) = 0 or P (B ) = 0. Since we know, that P (A ∩ B ) = P (A)P (B ) the statement follows directly, if we also assume, that the events are disjoint, i.e. P (A ∩ B ) = 0 (c) If they are exhaustive (i.e. A ∪ B = Ω), then P (A) = 1 or P (B ) = 1. From 1 = P (A ∪ B ) we get, 1 = P (A ∪ B ) = 1 − P (A ∩ B ) = 1 − P (A) · P (B ) Therefore P (A) · P (B ) = 0, which implies that either P (A) = 0 or P (B ) = 0. Then either P (A) = 1 or P (B ) = 1.
