Chapter 1 Basics
The sample space is the set of all possible outcomes. An event is a subset of the sample space, either an outcome (simple event) or a collection of outcomes (compound event).
Events are independent if an occurrence of one has no effect on the probability of the other. Events are exclusive if \(P(AB) = 0\). Use the multiplication rule to calculate combined probabilities for non-exclusive events (\(P(A|B) = P(A)P(B)\) for independent events, and $P*()(), and the addition rule to calculate combined probabilities for exclusive events.
