Describe a situation in which the probability of two events is mutually exclusive. Formulate and answer a question about its probability. Repeat the process for inclusive events. Read your classmates' answers. How do they compare to yours? Did you come up with the same situation as anyone else? Do you agree or disagree with their vision of the situation? Why is it important to determine whether events are mutually exclusive?

Rolling an even number with a die and rolling an odd number with a die.

- anonymous

@mathstudent55 would that be exclusive or inclusive?

go back to the theory of probability

- nincompoop

mutually exclusive if there is a disjoint between two events

- nincompoop

let me provide an example

@nincompoop so rolling die would be inclusive? Math isn't my strong area... neither are words, so if I don't make sense tell me lol

- mathstudent55

Mutually exclusive
If you roll an even number, it is not odd ,and if you roll an odd number it is not even.
Inclusive would be: roll a 3 or an odd number. Since 3 is odd, rolling a 3 or an odd number are not mutually exclusive events.

the same concept applies in every event.

@nincompoop so if I go with rolling an even die and and odd die, they'd be mutually exclusive?

- nincompoop

|dw:1437725373642:dw|

- nincompoop

so the two dies are designed to only give you odd or even respectively?

- nincompoop

the die is a poor example to drive the concept home if you're learning a mutually exclusive events.

Mutually exclusive events are events that cannot happen at the same. For example, a mutually exclusive event would flipping a coin and seeing if you get H or T. The formula to solve mutually exclusive probability is f(H)+f(H). Mutually inclusive events are events that can happen at the same time. For example, mutually inclusive events include rolling dice, to see if you get even or odd. The formula to solve mutually inclusive probability is d(e)+d(o)-d(e and o).
Would this be a good answer?

inclusive...

- nincompoop

there you have it.

*applauds*

- nincompoop

you must be able to provide an intersection of two sets (events) to be able to cite that they are inclusive. if no intersection occurs, which is null, then we say they are mutually exclusive or disjoint.

Okay (to make sure I have it),
If I roll 2 dice of 6 sides, the probability of getting odd, inclusive. The equations would be P(A) for even and P(A1) would be odd.

- nincompoop

no. you just say P(A) because A' is 1-P(A) or what is not P(A)
