# Compound Event

A compound event is an event that is a combination of two or more events. Below is an example.
Compound events can be illustrated using a Venn diagram.
• In the diagram below, the shaded region illustrates the event that a randomly chosen number is odd and not prime.
• In the diagram below, the shaded region illustrates the event that a basketball player scored point field goals and point free throws but did not score any point field goals during a game.

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