Two events are equally unlikely if the probability that they do not happen is the same for each event. And, since the probability of an event happening and not happening must add to 1, equally unlikely events are also equally likely,

Equally likely events.

When the n events of a given aleatory experiment are equally likely, the theoreticalprobability of any one of the n events is: P(E) = 1/n

Two events that have the same chance of happening. For example, if I flip a coin the event of obtaining a 'head' is equally as likely as the event of obtaining a 'tail'. But equally likely does not mean 0.5 probability. It's possible that it's equally likely that someone in Ontario, Canada will die from being stung by a wasp as from being electrocuted in their kitchen at home. Neither event is very likely but the two events could be equally likely.

No, the combined probability is the product of the probability of their separate occurrances.

are they dependent or independent? define success and failure for the 2 events. probability of success (EX: drawing a face card) = number of possible successes / total possible events. Multiply the two separate probabilities to get the probability that both occur.

They are "events that have the same probability". Nothing more, nothing less.

Independent events with a probability of zero
