Mutually exclusive events are events that cannot occur at the same time.
Event A: at least 2 male employees
Event B: 2 female employees
Julia Davis only has 3 employees. If event B is true, then she has 2 females and 1 male. Since event A calls for at least 2 males, the two events cannot occur at the same time.
Events A and B are mutually exclusive.
