# 2. Mutually Exclusive Events when event A and event B cannot happen together : 0 3. Collectively Exhaustive Events when the list of outcomes in event A and event B is same as Sample Space (S) : 1 4. Complement of the event : the collection of ALL possible outcomes that are not in the event : 1 Example: Roll a die and we want to know the probabilities of (A) getting a number at least 2, and (B) getting an odd number a.
f. Experiment: Roll a die Sample Space: (6 Possible Outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) Event A: Getting a number at least 2 (5 Favorable Outcomes: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) Event B: Getting an odd number (3 Favorable Outcomes: 1, 3, 5) Event A and B are not mutually exclusive as event A and event B can happen together (2 Favorable Outcomes: 3, 5) Event A and B are collectively exhaustive as the list of outcomes in event A and B is same as Sample Space (S) (6 Favorable Outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) g.
