Mutually Exclusive

**Mutual Exclisive events**

So today in class we got to explore what mutually exclusive events are.

They are events that __mutual__ ( have the same relation with or to each other ) but __exlusive__, ( or exclude the other ).

__EXAMPLE__: true and false

You are given a test with true or false questions, you can only choose true or false. You are __CANNOT__ choose both true or false at the same time. If you choose false, then the answer cannot be true, and if you choose true the answer cannot be false. Even though they share a **MUTUAL** relationship to this situation, the occurrence of one **EXCLUDES** the occurrence of the other. This is a mutually exclusive event

The Formulla we were given and the situation that we used it in:

Draw either a king or spade in a complete deck of 52 playing cards

**A** represents the 4 kings that may be drawn and **B**

During this class we also talked about Independent and Dependent events in relation to Mutually exclusive events

__Example__

rolling two dice and getting an even sum or double. This is Dependent but Not mutually exclusive.

__DEPENDENT EVENTS ARE NEVER MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE__

**INDEPENDENT EVENTS can be either MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE or NOT**

There were more questions we worked on and even though i didnt quit get it at first working through it in class helped. I'm still a bit fuzzy on it. But feel free to refer to the slides if you wish.. I hope this isnt too flashy. When i see that I can use HTML and i *REALLY* use HTML and... hehehe ... and the next scribe is..drum roll please.... (>n_n)>~-( DRUM ROLLLING )-~<(n_n<) .... Jhay-Ar
