### Can a mixed number be a whole number?

No, the two are mutually exclusive.

### If two events are mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive what is the probability that one or the other occurs?

If A and B are mutually exclusive, P(A or B)=P(A) + P(B) They both cannot occur together. For example: A die is rolled. A = an odd number; B= number is divisible by 2. P(A or B) = 1/3 + 1/3 = 2/3

### Is 60.371 a rational real and irrational number?

60.371 is the ratio of 60,371 to 1,000. It's a rational, real number. Moreover, since it's a rational number, it can't be an irrational number. Those two descriptions are mutually exclusive.

### Which is smaller avi or wmv?

Neither is "bigger" or "smaller"; nor are they mutually exclusive. AVI is a container format for audio and video, which can be in any number of formats, including WMV.

### Are all irrational numbers rational numbers?

No. In fact, a number cannot be both rational and irrational; they're mutually exclusive concepts.

### When might a tally table be useful?

When recording observations that fall into a small number of mutually exclusive (ie not overlapping) categories. When analysing a large number of observations of a discrete variable, or a variable that has been put into classes (intervals), so that there are several observations in each.

### Are some rational numbers are irrational numbers?

Numbers cannot be rational and irrational at the same time.

### How many different 2 by 2 squares are on a chessboard?

Answer # 1If the 2x2 squares are mutually exclusive (i.e. non-overlapping), then the maximum number of 2x2 squares on a standard 8 x 8 board is 8x8 / (2x2) = 64 / 4 = 16.

### Is 3 and 1 prime?

If your question was really "Are 3 and 1 mutually prime?" The answer is no as by definition nothing can be mutually prime with 1 (which also by definition is not a prime number). The first prime number is 2. The second is 3. The third is 5. The fourth is 7. The fifth is 11. etc. However numbers can be "mutually prime" even when the numbers themselves are not prime numbers. For example 12 and 6 are neither mutually prime nor prime numbers, but 15 and 4 are mutually prime but neither is a prime number.

### What is the greatest common multiple of 37 and 12?

It makes no sense to ask for the greatest common multiple of two numbers. If the numbers are two and three, a common multiple is 2 x 3 x any number you like ! Since the third number can be as big as you choose, so there is no limit to a g.c.m.You probably meant to ask for the least common multiple. Since 12 and 37 are mutually prime, the l.c.m is just 12 x 37 or 444.

### Can a probability distribution be a mutually exclusive listing of the outcomes of an experiment which can occur by chance and the corresponding probabilities of occurrance?

Not quite. The listing must also be exhaustive: it must contain all possible outcomes.For the roll of a fair cubic die, consider the following:Prob(1) = 1/6Prob(2) = 1/6This is a mutually exclusive listing of the outcomes of the experiment and the corresponding probabilities of occurrence but it is not a probability distribution because it does not include all possible outcomes. As a result, the total of the listed probabilities is less than 1.

### What number is relatively prime to 7?

Any number that is not a multiple of 7.Any number that is not a multiple of 7.Any number that is not a multiple of 7.Any number that is not a multiple of 7.
