# How does the General Multiplication rule differ from the Special Multiplication Rule of Probability?

##### 1 Answer

General Multiplication Rule of Probability is related to a probability of a combined occurrence of any two events

Special Multiplication Rule is related to a probability of a combined occurrence of two **independent** events (that is, the probability of one is not dependent on the probability of another or, in other words, **conditional** probability of one under condition of occurrence of another equals to its **unconditional** probability). This necessitates

Informative lectures and solutions to many problems of the Theory of Probabilities for beginners can be found in the corresponding chapter on the Web site Unizor (free online course of advanced mathematics for teenagers). There you can find definitions and properties of main objects the Theory of Probabilities deals with - *sample space, events, measures of probability, independence* etc.
