TL;DR
This content explains the addition and multiplication rules of probability, as well as the concept of independence, with an example involving course enrollment probabilities.
Key Insights
 😃 The addition rule allows us to calculate the probability of either event A or event B occurring.
 🆘 The multiplication rule helps us find the probability of both event A and event B occurring together.
 ✖️ Independent events have probabilities that can be calculated separately using simple multiplication.

now we're going to talk about two basic rules of probability the first one is sometimes refer to as the addition rule the probability of forget an event a or event B can be written as the probability of a and union with B this is equal to the probability of event a no current plus the probability of event B occurring minus the probability of event ...

Questions & Answers
Q: What is the addition rule in probability?
The addition rule states that the probability of either event A or event B occurring is equal to the sum of their individual probabilities, minus the probability of both events occurring together.
Q: How does the multiplication rule work in probability?
The multiplication rule states that the probability of event A and event B occurring together is equal to the product of the probability of event A given event B and the probability of event B.
Q: What is an independent event in probability?
Independent events are those that do not depend on each other. The probability of event A given event B is equal to the probability of event A, and the probability of event B given event A is equal to the probability of event B.
Q: Are the events in the provided scenario independent?
No, the events are not independent because the probability of enrolling in an algebra course given enrollment in a biology course is not equal to the probability of enrolling in an algebra course alone.
Summary & Key Takeaways

The addition rule states that the probability of either event A or event B occurring is equal to the sum of their individual probabilities, minus the probability of both events occurring together.

The multiplication rule explains that the probability of event A and event B occurring together is equal to the product of the probability of event A given event B and the probability of event B.

Independent events are those that do not depend on each other, and their probabilities can be calculated separately using simple multiplication.

A scenario involving course enrollment probabilities is used to demonstrate the application of these rules.
