Definition: Generally speaking, random events are mutually exclusive, if they cannot occur together, such that their intersection is equal to the empty set.
More precisely, a set of statements $A_1, \ldots, A_n$ is called mutually exclusive, if
where $p(A_1, \ldots, A_n)$ is the joint probability of the statements $A_1, \ldots, A_n$.
