Simple probability is when one event occurs. It is calculated by dividing what you are looking for by the total outcomes
Compound probability is when two or more events occur together. It is the probability of two or more events happening at the same time. It is calculated by multiplying the probability of each event happening.
How do we calculate compound probability?
Compound Probability: This is the probability of two or more events happening at the same time. Independent Events: Two events are independent when the outcome of one event does not affect the outcome of the other event. Dependent Events: Two events are dependent when the occurrence of one event affects the likelihood of the other event occurring.
