Verbal

For the following exercises, assume that there are n ways an event A can happen, m ways an event B can happen, and that A  and  B are non-overlapping.

Use the Addition Principle of counting to explain how many ways event A  or  B can occur.

There are m + n ways for either event A or event B to occur.

Answer the following questions.

When given two separate events, how do we know whether to apply the Addition Principle or the Multiplication Principle when calculating possible outcomes? What conjunctions may help to determine which operations to use?

The addition principle is applied when determining the total possible of outcomes of either event occurring. The multiplication principle is applied when determining the total possible outcomes of both events occurring. The word “or” usually implies an addition problem. The word “and” usually implies a multiplication problem.
