correct

one more example:

For example, in the case of rolling a die the event of getting an ‘odd-face’ and the event of getting ‘less than 4’ are not mutually exclusive and they are also known as compatible event.

The event of getting an ‘odd-face’ and the event of getting ‘less than 4’ occur when we get either 1 or 3.

Let ‘X’ is denoted as event of getting an ‘odd-face’ and

‘Y’ is denoted as event of getting ‘less than 4’

The events of getting an odd number (X) = {1, 3, 5}

The events of getting less than 4 (Y) = {1, 2, 3}

Between the events X and Y the common outcomes are 1 and 3

Therefore, the events X and Y are compatible events/mutually non-exclusive.

You lost me here. By mutually non-exclusive events, do you mean that both can occur simultaneously in this case?

non-exclusive events, mean that both can occur in same time
