# Type of Event - Complementry

#### notes

Suppose there are two events E and F where P(E)=1/3 and P(F)=2/3 , is F not the same as ‘not E’? Yes, it is. We denote the event
‘not E’ by barE .

So,   P(E)+P(not E)=1

P(E)+P(barE)=1, Which gives us P(barE)=1-P(E) In general, it is true that for an event E,

P(barE)=1-P(E)

The event E , representing ‘not E’, is called the complement of the event E. We also say that E and E are   complementary events.
