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.  You will look at independent and dependent events, and describe events as subsets of a sample space.  You will learn to determine whether events are independent or dependent.  You will apply the Addition Rule for Probabilities and interpret answers in terms of the context provided.  You will also construct and interpret two-way tables of data.
