III. LESSON PROCEDURE
Teacher’s Activity Student’s Activity
A. Motivation
Class, let’s have an activity. I have four
envelopes here and each envelope contains a
sheet. What you are going to do is to answer
what the sheet asks for. The questions here
have something to do with your prior
knowledge. If you’re done just clap three
times. Are the instructions clear?
(see attachment)
Yes, sir!
What phrase did you get?
Mutually Exclusive Events sir!
Brilliant!
B. Presentation
Now, let’s talk about mutually exclusive
events
C. Lesson Proper
What is mutually exclusive events?
It is an event that can’t happen at the same
time. Events do not have common element.
Correct! For example, turning left and turning
right are mutually exclusive events because
you can’t do both at the same time. Another
example is obtaining heads or tails in tossing
a coin is mutually exclusive events.
understood?
Yes, sir!
Now try to determine whether the following
events are mutually exclusive or not.
Event of obtaining an odd or even number in
tossing a die.
Mutually exclusive events sir!
Correct! Event of obtaining an of multiple of
3.
Not mutually exclusive events, sir!
Why?
Because the elements of odd number in a die
are {1,3,5} and the multiples of 3 are {3,6}
wherein these events have common element
which is 3.
Correct! How about in a standard deck of
cards; event of obtaining a king or a red card.
Not mutually exclusive events sir!
Why?
Because there is a red card king.
Exactly! Event of obtaining ace or jack?
Mutually exclusive events sir!
Excellent! Now that you know how to
determine mutually exclusive events. Let’s
proceed on solving the probability of
mutually exclusive events. What is the
formula in getting the probability of mutually
exclusive events class?
𝑃(𝐴 𝑈 𝐵) = 𝑃(𝐴) + 𝑃(𝐵)
Very good! Let’s have some examples.
Example 1.
In tossing a fair die, what is the probability of
obtaining 1 or 6?

Solution
𝑃(1 𝑈 6) = 𝑃(1) + 𝑃(6)
1 1
𝑃(1 𝑈 6) = +
6 6
2 1
𝑃(1 𝑈 6) = 𝑜𝑟
6 3
Understood?
Yes, sir!
Example 2.
In tossing a die, what is the probability of
obtaining an odd or 4?
𝑃(𝑜𝑑𝑑 𝑈 4) = 𝑃(𝑜𝑑𝑑) + 𝑃(4)
3 1
𝑃(𝑜𝑑𝑑 𝑈 4) = +
6 6
4 2
𝑃(𝑜𝑑𝑑 𝑈 4) = 𝑜𝑟
6 3
Very good!
Example 3.
In a bag of 4 blue balls, 5 red balls, 2 green
balls and 3 white balls. What is the
probability of picking
a. a green or blue ball?
𝑃(𝑔𝑟𝑒𝑒𝑛 𝑈 𝑏𝑙𝑢𝑒) = 𝑃(𝑔𝑟𝑒𝑒𝑛) + 𝑃(𝑏𝑙𝑢𝑒)
2 4
𝑃(𝑔𝑟𝑒𝑒𝑛 𝑈 𝑏𝑙𝑢𝑒) = +
14 14
6 3
𝑃(𝑔𝑟𝑒𝑒𝑛 𝑈 𝑏𝑙𝑢𝑒) = 𝑜𝑟
14 7
b. a red ball or white ball?
𝑃(𝑟𝑒𝑑 𝑈 𝑤ℎ𝑖𝑡𝑒) = 𝑃 (𝑟𝑒𝑑 ) + 𝑃 (𝑤ℎ𝑖𝑡𝑒)
5 3
𝑃(𝑟𝑒𝑑 𝑈 𝑤ℎ𝑖𝑡𝑒) = +
14 14
8 4
𝑃(𝑟𝑒𝑑 𝑈 𝑤ℎ𝑖𝑡𝑒) = 𝑜𝑟
14 7
Example 4.
In drawing a card from a standard deck of
cards. What is the probability of drawing jack
𝑃(𝑗𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑜𝑓 𝑠𝑝𝑎𝑑𝑒𝑠 𝑈 𝑘𝑖𝑛𝑔)
= 𝑃(𝑗𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑜𝑓 𝑠𝑝𝑎𝑑𝑒𝑠)
+ 𝑃(𝑘𝑖𝑛𝑔)
1 4
𝑃(𝑗𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑜𝑓 𝑠𝑝𝑎𝑑𝑒𝑠 𝑈 𝑘𝑖𝑛𝑔) = +
52 52
5
𝑃(𝑗𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑜𝑓 𝑠𝑝𝑎𝑑𝑒𝑠 𝑈 𝑘𝑖𝑛𝑔) =
Excellent! 52
D. Generalization
Who can tell the class whether two events are
mutually exclusive or not?
Two events are mutually exclusive if and only
if they can’t occur at the same time.
Brilliant!
E. Application
