Statistics and Probability

## Definition

The multiplication rule of probability is used to find the probability of two independent events both occurring.

## Description

The multiplication rule is essential in probability for calculating the likelihood of multiple independent events occurring together. This rule is applied in fields such as genetics, where the probability of inheriting multiple traits is determined. For students, understanding the multiplication rule is crucial for solving problems involving the probability of compound events and for developing a deeper understanding of probability theory.
