In this lesson, we will learn how to identify mutually exclusive events and find their probabilities.
Sample Question Videos
A bag contains 41 balls. There are 28 red balls which are numbered 1 to 28 and 13 white balls which are numbered 29 to 41. If a ball is chosen from the bag at random, what is the probability of the ball being red and having an even number?
Suppose that and are two mutually exclusive events. The probability of the event occurring is five times that of the event occurring. Given that the probability that one of the two events occurs is 0.18, find the probability of event occurring.
A bag contains fifty-one balls numbered 1 to 51. If one ball is randomly drawn from the bag without looking, what is the probability that is is numbered 17 or 27? Give your answer as a fraction in its simplest form.
