### 1. How to Calculate Simple Conditional Probabilities

Conditional probability refers to the probability that an event will occur provided a previous event occurs. Learn about simple conditional probabilities and how to calculate them. Explore dependent events, understand how they differ from conditional probabilities, and review conditional probability examples.

### 2. Probability of Independent and Dependent Events

Probability is a ratio that predicts the likelihood an event will occur. Explore the concept of probability and understand the difference between independent and dependent events. Learn how to calculate the probability of both independent and dependent events, and review examples.

### 3. How to Calculate the Probability of Combinations

The probability of combinations may be calculated when the order of the outcomes does not matter, using the number of favorable outcomes divided by total outcomes. Learn how to calculate the probability of combinations by working through helpful example problems.

### 4. How to Calculate a Permutation

A permutation is a process for placing things into a linear order. Learn how to calculate a permutation. Explore factorials and permutation notations, and review examples of permutation calculations.
