[ATTACH=full]3874[/ATTACH] Requesting two sample word problems.

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?

Ok. Will delete it now. Sorry about that. Updated the second example. delete those to, so my comment will be deleted too
