comment Why are these two events not independent?
how do i start a new line? I hit "enter" in the editor but Pr(E) =.51 Pr(F) =.91 E $\bigcap$ F = { HT, TH} = .21 + .21 = .42 $\neq$ Pr(E) $\cdot$ Pr(F) are still on the same line....

I found another answer and added to the body of my question. What do you think of that?

one solution manual says $1-p$, the other one says it's $\frac {15}{16}$...x_x

comment Why aren't these events mutually exclusive?
in fact this question is an example that components are independent, but not mutually exclusive =)

@CliveN. independence does not guarantee mutual exclusivity!

what statement implies that it isn't so?

comment Why aren't these events mutually exclusive?
for two events to be mutually exclusive $A_1$ $\cap $ $A_2$ must be nothing. However, I've been told in this question, those two events are not mutually exclusive. I just need some evidence to show that they're not mutually exclusive...

why do we have $\frac 1{36}$0, $\frac 2{36}$0, and $\frac 1{36}$0 (the last term). Those are the instances where we Win, shouldn't we add those fractions to the total probability of Winning?
