The multiplication rule in probability allows you to calculate the probability of multiple events occurring together using known probabilities of those events individually. There are two forms of this rule, the specific and general multiplication rules.

In this post, learn about when and how to use both the specific and general multiplication rules. Additionally, I’ll use and explain the standard notation for probabilities throughout, helping you learn how to interpret it. We’ll work through several example problems so you can see them in action. There’s even a bonus problem at the end! [Read more…] about Multiplication Rule for Calculating Probabilities
