    Re: Which of the following events is mutually exclusive? I think you have to provide two or more events for comparison.

    Rolling a 3 or a number greater than 1. Rolling a 4 or rolling an odd number. Rolling a 6 or rolling a multiple of 2. Rolling a 5 or rolling a prime number.

    Answer: Rolling a 4 or rolling an odd number. These two events can't happen at the same time. That is the definition of mutually exclusive events. Check out, if you like: http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/probability-events-mutually-exclusive.html
