Lessons
Notes:
$\cdot$ P(A or B): probability of event A occurring or event B occurring during a single trial.
$\cdot$ If events A, B are mutually exclusive:
 events A, B have no common outcomes.
 in the Venn Diagram, the circle for A and the circle for B have no area of overlap.
 P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B)
$\cdot$ If events A, B are not mutually exclusive:
 events A, B have common outcomes.
 in the Venn Diagram, the circle for A and the circle for B have an area of overlap representing the event “A and B”.
 P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A and B)
