## What is the probability of A and B if they are mutually exclusive?

0

If Events A and B are mutually exclusive, P(A ∩ B) = 0. The probability that Events A or B occur is the probability of the union of A and B.

**When two events A and B are non mutually exclusive the probability that A or B will occur is the sum of the probability of each event P A or B p/a p b?**

Addition Rule 2: When two events, A and B, are non-mutually exclusive, there is some overlap between these events. The probability that A or B will occur is the sum of the probability of each event, minus the probability of the overlap.

### Are B and C mutually exclusive events?

B and C are mutually exclusive. (B and C have no members in common because you cannot have all tails and all heads at the same time.)

**Are the events A and B mutually exclusive find P A or B?**

If two events A and B are mutually exclusive, the events are called disjoint events. The probability of two disjoint events A or B happening is: p(A or B) = p(A) + p(B).

## What is mutually inclusive?

Share on. Probability > Mutually Inclusive. Mutually inclusive events have some overlap with each other. For example, the events “buying an alarm system” and “buying bucket seats” are mutually inclusive, as both events can happen at the same time. In other words, a car buyer can opt to buy and alarm and bucket seats.

**How do you find the probability of two mutually exclusive events?**

If A and B are said to be mutually exclusive events then the probability of an event A occurring or the probability of event B occurring is given as P(A) + P(B) P (A or B) = P(A) + P(B) Some of the examples of the mutually exclusive events are: When tossing a coin, the event of getting head and tail are mutually exclusive.

### When are A and B mutually exclusive events?

A and B are mutually exclusive events if they cannot occur at the same time. This means that A and B do not share any outcomes and P (A AND B) = 0. For example, suppose the sample space S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}. Let A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, B = {4, 5, 6, 7, 8}, and C = {7, 9}.

**How do you find the probability of disjoint events?**

If A and B are the two events, then the probability of disjoint of event A and B is written by: Probability of Disjoint (or) Mutually Exclusive Event = P (A and B) = 0 In probability, the specific addition rule is valid when two events are mutually exclusive.

## What are simple events and conditional probability?

Such events have single point in the sample space and are called “Simple Events”. Such kind of two sample events is always mutually exclusive. Conditional probability is stated as the probability of an event A, given that another event B has occurred.
