4 ) + P ( D 8 ) P ( A 4 D 8 ) = 6 36 + 15 36 3 36 = 1 2 . By this form of reasoning, we can arrive at the following law of probability: The probability that either of events A and B will occur, or that both of them will occur, is equal to the sum of their separate probabilities less the probability or their joint occurrence. Thus P ( A B ) = P ( A ) + P ( B ) P ( A B ) . 6

    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.
