Events in a probability experiment can be classified as Simple and Compound events. When an event cannot be broken into smaller events it is known as a Simple event. Simple events have only one outcome. This against the outcomes for a compound event is not restricted to a single outcome. Compound events are also known as multiple events as they can be viewed as the simultaneous occurrence of more than one event. In real world experiences, we require to deal with Compound events more often than with Simple Events. For this purpose specific rules/formulas are derived for computing the probability of compound events.
Let us see, how compound events are defined and how their probabilities are computed.
