Outcome
A particular result of an experiment
Event

Classical Probability
Outcomes of an experiment are equally likely.
Mutually Exclusive
The occurance of one event means that none of the other events can occur at the same time
Collectively Exhaustive
At least one of the events must occur when an experiment is conducted
Empirical Probability
The probability of an event happening is the fraction of the time similar events happened in the past
Law Of Large Numbers

Complement Rule
1-P(~A)
General Rule Of Addition

Joint Probability
A probability that measures the likelyhood two or more events will happen concurrently.
Special Rule Of Multipcation

General Rule of Multiplication
P(A)P(B/A)
Dependent
