Intersection of Events and the Multiplication Rule

  • The multiplication rule is used to find the probability of the intersection of two or more events (i.e., the joint probability).

  • If the events are independent of one another, the multiplication rule is simplified.

  • If the events are mutually exclusive, the joint probability is zero.
