Lets
talk about some stuff from the last chapter.






When
you flip a coin, 


the
chance of getting a heads is ... 





50%
also known as .50, also known as






When
you flip a coin two times,



the
chance of getting two heads is ... 





25% also known
as .25, also known as 





When
you flip a coin three times, 


the
chance of all three being heads is ... 





12.5% also known
as .125, also known as 





There
is a pattern here. 


See
it? 





The
chance of getting a heads on the first flip is ... 











The
chance of getting a heads on the first flip 


AND
the second flip is ... 











The
chance of getting a heads on the first flip 


AND
the second flip, AND the third
flip is ... 











The
deal is, 


when
we connect the chance of independent events happening 


with
the word AND, 


we
multiply together the chance of each one happening.
