Probability of Dependent Events :

When calculating the probability of multiple events, we must determine if the events are dependent or independent of one another. When calculating the probability of dependent events we must take into account the effect of one event on the other. An example of calculating the probability of dependent events is the probability of drawing two specific cards in a row with the second card being drawn from a smaller deck.

How to find the probability of dependent events.

Students learn that two events are dependent if the outcome of the first event affects the outcome of the second event.

A card game using 36 unique cards: four suits (diamonds, hearts, clubs, and spades) with cards numbered from 1 to 9 in each suit. A hand is a collection of 9 cards, which can be sorted however the player chooses. What is the probability of getting all four of the 1's?<
