Dependent events - Two events are dependent if the outcome or occurrence of the first affects the outcome or occurrence of the second so that the probability is changed. Complementary events - All outcomes that are NOT the event; If the event is Monday or Tuesday, the complement would be the days Wednesday through Sunday. Mutually exclusive events - Two events are mutually exclusive if they cannot occur at the same time (i.e., they have no outcomes in common)
