A compound event describes the probabilistic outcomes from two or more events. Some compound events do not affect each other’s outcomes, such as throwing a die and tossing a coin. Other compound events do affect each other’s outputs. For example, if you take two cards from a deck of playing cards, the likelihood of second card having a certain quality is altered by the fact that the first card has already been removed from the deck.
