### You have a deck of cards, and you want to know your probability of winning the game. You need to get a red ace; when you draw your first card, and a nine diamond when you pull the second. How may you know your mathematical possibilities? Are these inclusive, or exclusive events? Are they dependent, or independent? ... Should I add probabilities? Or should I multiply probabilities?

### You are not by yourself. In this lesson we guide you to learn those concepts; their differences, and their similarities. We will use the standard deck of cards, and marbles, or even alphabet letters to illustrate the different cases. This will be a very enjoyable "event" for you!

** Lesson's Content **

** Lesson's Glossary **

**Combination: Any arrangement in which order is not important. **

**Dependent events: The outcome of a dependent event is affected by the outcome of the previous event. **

**Independent Events: If an outcome doesnâ€™t affect the outcome of a following event, then the two events are independent.**

**Factorial! n! represents the product of all the whole numbers from n to 1. n! is the product of all the whole numbers from n down to 1 - used in probability.**

**Mutually exclusive events: Events with no common outcomes. **

**Mutually inclusive events: Events with common outcomes. **

**Outcomes: The possible results of a probability experiment. **

**Permutation: Any arrangement in which order is important. **

**Probability: The possibility of an event to happen. The probability of getting an even number when rolling a 6 sided dice is 50%.**

**Sample Space: All possible ways an event may happen. **
