ProbabilityThe notion of chance or probability of an event plays a crucial role in statistics. In this module we will study this notion and learn different rules that will help us determine the probability of different types of events associated with a process.Learning Objectives:Random experiment, sample space, eventsPermutation and CombinationDefinition of probability of an event and its propertiesDisjoint and independent eventsConditional eventsVenn and Tree DiagramsComplement (Subtraction) ruleAddition ruleMultiplication ruleDivision ruleTwo-Way tablesTotal Probability Rule and Bayes Rule

Core TMM010 Outcome: Core skill demonstrated by students who successfully complete an Introductory Statistics Course
Standard: Compute the probability of compound events, independent events, and disjoint events, as well as
conditional probability. Compute probabilities using discrete and continuous distributions, especially applications of the normal distribution.
