Counting Principles and Basic Probability

Topic Review on "Title":

Fundamental Counting Principle:
Suppose two operations are to be performed in order:

With  possible outcomes for the first, and for each of these there are possible outcomes for the second. Hence, the total number of possible outcomes is given by the product .

A permutation is an ordered arrangement of a set of objects in a row.

For any natural number , we define .
Suppose r objects are selected from a set of n objects without regard to order, each such selection is called a combination, denoted by or .
Theorem of Combination:
The number of combinations taken r at a time of a set of n objects is given by

The probability of any event H is the sum of the probabilities of those outcomes of the sample space which belongs to denoted by

Probability of Successes for H:

Theorem I of Overlapping Events:
or and  

Theorem II of Disjoint Events:
If A and B are mutually exclusive events, then or .

Theorem of Dependent Events:
If the probability of an event A depends on the occurrence of an event B, then
and  where the probability that if B has occurs, then A occurs.

Theorem of Independent Events:

If A and B are independent events then and .
