Explain the concept of mutually exclusive events:
Two events are mutually exclusive if they cannot occur at the same time. Simplest example would be that of tossing of a coin. The result can be either a head or a tails. Thus, an event of a head and tail cannot happen at the same time when tossing a coin. Another example can be that of a dummy ...
The solution explains the concept of mutually exclusive events and how to calculate the probability if the events are not mutually exclusive.
