# Welcome!

Probability is widely used in many career fields to help researchers and companies make reasonable predictions based on data collected. Thus, it is important to understand how to calculate and evaluate probabilities for simple and compound events.

In this module, you will:

- Build on your prior understanding of probability to include compound events.
- Examine independent and dependent events, and describe events as subsets of a sample space.
- Determine whether events are independent or dependent.
- Apply the Addition Rule and interpret answers in terms of the context provided.
- Construct and interpret two-way tables of data.

# Lessons

## Fan Appreciation Night, Part 1

In this lesson, you will build on concepts that were first explored in 7th grade. You will find the probability of independent and dependent events and explore whether or not events are independent, i.e., the events are independent if . Next, you will compute and interpret theoretical and experimental probabilities of compound events.

## Fan Appreciation Night, Part 2

In this lesson, you will distinguish between mutually exclusive and mutually inclusive events. You will calculate

. This lesson will include opportunities for you to apply the Addition Rule.

## Fan Appreciation Night, Part 3

In this lesson, you will interpret data by constructing and interpreting a two-way frequency table.
