Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Using the information from the question, are the outcomes mutually exclusive? Why or why not? a. yes, they have the same probability b. no, they have the same probability c. yes, you are only drawing one MM so orange or purple cannot occur at the same time. d. no, you are only drawing one MM so orange or purple cannot occur at the same time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the two events "purple" and "orange" are mutually exclusive, so we can use this formula P(purple candy or orange candy) = P(purple) + P(orange) P(purple candy or orange candy) = P(purple) + P(orange) P(purple candy or orange candy) = (20%) + (10%) P(purple candy or orange candy) = 30%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are mutually exclusive because you can only pick one color at a time. In that case, you can only pick purple or orange. But not both at the same time.
