This is the next video in the series looking at Probability for the Year 11 Mathematical Methods (Units 1 and 2) course. Looking at Combining Events I recap the work which will have been covered in Years 9 and 10 but take it deeper. I look, once again, at Venn Diagrams. How they are drawn and how you can use them to find various probabilities. I look at the Addition Rule and where it comes from and why we need to remove sections. And I use lots of worked examples to explain how these questions can do easily trip you up.
