# Ch 5: Probability: Rules for Events

Learn about rules for events by watching videos taught by subject experts. Each lesson comes with a quiz to make sure you understand these rules. Real-world examples are also used to make learning fun and practical.

## Probability: Rules for Events - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

The short and fast video lessons in this chapter introduce you to probabilities of different events. You'll learn to calculate probabilities of simple and compound events, independent events and more. These videos teach you how to apply conditional probability to practical situations and use two-way tables. A variety of tools are available with each lesson to aid your study of this topic, including lesson quizzes to check your knowledge of the material, transcripts to pinpoint key terms and video tags to quickly find main points of the videos. These lessons can help you:

• Describe the elements of mathematical sets
• Learn to use read two-way tables
• Link conditional probabilities to independence
• Describe and use the addition and multiplication rules of probability
