In probability situations, dependent events are events where one outcome impacts the probability of the other.
Favorable Outcome

Favorable Outcome

A favorable outcome is the outcome that you are looking for in an experiment.
Independent Events

Independent Events

Two events are independent if the occurrence of one event does not impact the probability of the other event.
Multiplication Rule

Multiplication Rule

States that for 2 events (A and B), the probability of A and B is given by: P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B).
Mutually Exclusive Events

Mutually Exclusive Events

Mutually exclusive events have no common outcomes.
