    law of total probability - variation formal names?




    Hello, there are different variations of the law of total probability. For example, the probability of 3 discreet events all occurring is:

    A1 * A2 * A3

    The probability of at least 1 of 3 discreet events occurring is:

    1 - ((1 - A1) * (1 - A2) * (1 - A3))

    Is there a formal name associated with each of these variations of the law of total probability?

    Provide a reference!
    You mean mutually exclusive events or disjoint events?
