Scratch file designed by Linda Fahlberg-Stojanovska.
We have 4 balls - 2 Reds and 2 Greens. We drop them randomly into 2 boxes.
These two events are mutually exclusive and complete.
(a) Both boxes will have will have 1R & 1G.
(b) One box 2G, other box 2R.
Do the experiment 200-1000 times.
Now for some dreaded theory ...
"Mutually exclusive" meaning both events cannot happen at same time and "complete" meaning no other event can occur.
