Theory that the probability that two independent events will occur is equal to the probability that one independent event will occur times the probability that a second independent event will occur. For example, on a single toss of two dimes (each dime having a head and a tail), the probability that both will land on their tails is equal to 1/4 (1/2x1/2)
