### 2 AUG 2015 Basic Stat 1 Part 1 Vivek Sayal

This is regarding the webinar on Basic Stats 1 part 1 in which you have talked about joint probability. My question is what do we call P(A) X P(B) where A and B are mutually exclusive events, if, for them, the joint probability that is P(AñB) is zero. What are the joint probabilities for mutually dependent events and independent events respectively. How are mutually exclusive events different from mutually Exhaustive events? What would their joint probability be?

In Mutually Independent Events, probability of finding out one's probability doesn't effects the probability of other event.
Joint Probability of 2 mutually Independent events is 0
Joint Probability of 2 Dependent Events is 1.
In Mutually exclusive events, occurrence of 1 event is not influenced by occurrence of other event. While in case of Mutually exhaustive events, either of the event can take place but both cannot.
