Mutually exclusive event no common cards together Overlapping event because a card could be a King and heart at the same time. P(Queen or Ace) = P(Queen) + P(Ace) P(King or Heart) = P(King) + P(heart) P(King and heart) Examples: 1. You choose a card from a standard 52-card deck. Find the probability that you choose a heart or a spade. P(heart of spade) = 2. You choose a card from a standard 52-card deck. Find the probability that you choose an even number or a heart. P(even or heart) = 1. What is the probability that the ball selected is an odd numbered yellow ball? 2. What is the probability that a randomly chosen ball is even and red? 3. What is the probability that a randomly chosen ball is not add and blue? 4. What is the probability that a randomly chosen ball is odd?

Find the probability of A and B (multiply) A basket of applies contains 6 red apples, 2 green apples, and 3 yellow apples. You randomly secto 2 apples, one at a time. Find the probability that both are yellow if: You replace the first apple, then select a second You eat the first apple, then select the second Independent Event you replace the first selection Dependent Event your sample space changes, you do not replace the first outcome. P(2 yellow apples) = P(2 yellow apples) = Example: An aquarium contains 6 male goldfish and 4 female goldfish. You randomly select a fish from the tank, do not replace it, and then randomly choose a second fish. What is the probability that both fish are male? P(male and then female) =

    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.
