A box contains 10 cards numbered 1 through 10. Which events are mutually exclusive?

Mutually exclusive means that when one result is obtained it can't be, at the same time, the other result. For example if you pick a card and you get an even number. Then you pick another card and you get an odd number. These two results are mutually exclusive because when one result happens, the other result cannot happen. If you pick one card and it's a 6, and youi pick a second card and it's even, these two events are not mutually exclusive, because picking the 6 is included in picking an even number.

Now look at each question and see if the same result can come up in both of the events of each problem. If so, they are not mutually exclusive.

@applepie123 Look at A. A card is drawn from the box and the number is even. Name the results this can possibly have.

Now still looking at A., A card is drawn from the box and the number is 4. Is 4 included in the numbers from the first part? If so, it is not mutually exclusive.
