PROBABILITY

# Compound experiments

A **compound experiment** is formed by some simple experiments that are taking place consecutively. Then, the compound sample space is its sample space.

The probability of an outcome of a compound experiment can be the product of the probabilities of the outcomes that form the compound experiment.

Example: the probability of obtaining three heads when we flip a coin three times is: P(HHH) = 0,5^{3} = 0,125
