### Statistics - Lecture 21

The Basics of Probability

Probability is a measure of the likelihood of an event.

A sample space is a collection of all possible outcomes.

An event with a probability of 0 is impossible (it will never happen).

An event with a probability of 1 is certain (it will always occur).

### Statistics - Lecture 22

Addition Rule (Probability "or")

Two events are mutually exclusive if they cannot occur at the same time.

Addition rule for mutually exclusive events:

P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B)### Statistics - Lecture 23

Multiplication Rule (Probability "and")

Two events are independent if they do not affect one another.

Multiplication Rule for independent events:

P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)

General Multiplication Rule for Dependent or Conditional Event:

P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B|A)
