Determine whether 2 events are mutually exclusive: Explain?

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

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.**
