1. Landing on heads after tossing a coin AND rolling a 5 on a single 6-sided die

2. to get sum of 12 from one die thrown two times. both the time you need to get 6 to achieve sum as 12.

or removing colored marbles from a bag. Each time you remove a marble the chances of drawing out a certain color will change.

3.When two events are independent, the probability of both occurring is the product of the probabilities of the individual events.If events A and B are independent, then the probability of both A and B occurring is:

P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)

Probability of A or B : If Events A and B are independent, the probability that either Event A or Event B occurs is:

P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A and B)

4. When two events, A and B, are dependent, the probability of both occurring is:

P(A and B)  =  P(A) ยท P(B|A)
