Additional rule is used to calculate the probability of two or more mutually exclusive events. In such circumstances the probability of the separate events should be added.

Illustration

What is the probability of throwing a 3 or a 6 along with a throw of a die?

Solution

P(throwing a 3 or a 6) = (1/6) + (1/6) = 1/3
