##### Objective:

• Define what if means for events to be disjoint (mutually exclusive) and independent
• Present the rules of probability for disjoint and independent events, providing examples of each
• Demonstrate how to represent probability with venn diagrams
• Review key words such as “not”, “or” and “and” and how they can indicate different types of events in probability

## What's in this packet

This packet has two videos showing you the rules for disjoint and independent events. The first video shows you the definitions for each, and the second video shows you the probability rules, and some examples for each. Some terms that may be new to you are:

• Complement Rule
• Addition Rule for Disjoint (Mutually Exclusive Events)
• Multiplication Rule for Independent Events
• Venn Diagram
• Union
• Intersection
