  • Axiom 2: The probability that at least one of all the possible outcomes of a process (such as rolling a die) will occur is 1.
  • Axiom 3: If two events A and B are mutually exclusive, then the probability of either A or B occurring is the probability of A occurring plus the probability of B occurring.
