The union or intersection of two events iscalled a compound event. Union of A and B: All outcomes foreither A or B Intersection of A and B: Only outcomes sharedby both A and B
If the intersection of A and B is empty, then Aand B are mutually exclusive events. This means, outcomes for events A and Bnever overlap.
P(A and B) = probability of outcomes that fallin the intersection P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A and B) If A and B are mutually exclusive: P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B)
