Compound Event

Concept

Compound Event

A compound event is an event that is a combination of two or more events. Compound events can be illustrated on a Venn diagram.

  • On the diagram below, the shaded region illustrates the event that a randomly chosen number is odd, but not prime.
  • On the diagram below, the shaded region illustrates the event that, during a basketball game, a player scored point field goals and free throws but did not score any point field goal.

The probability of compound events can be found using the Addition Rule of Probability.
