Combining the Rules of Probability

Combining the Rules of Probability

Author: Michael Morgan
Description:

The purpose of this packet is to demonstrate the use of a tree diagram in combining multiplication and addition probability problems. After the demonstration, a definition for the rule for computing compound probabilities will be provided along with examples.

By now you should have a fairly decent grasp on the concepts of probability as separate rules. Well. it's time to combine those rules you have already learned. In this packet, we will take a look at the usefulness of a tree diagram when combining multiplication and addition probability problems. Once we have finished with that, we will define the rule for computing compound probabilities and go through a couple examples.
