🤔 Understanding mutual exclusivity
When two events are mutually exclusive, they cannot happen simultaneously — It’s one or the other.

Think again of a coin toss. The results are mutually exclusive (it will be either heads or tails; it can’t be both on the same flip). And it will be one of the two options — heads and tails are the only possible options (thus they are exhaustive).

The concept of independent events also applies to capital financing. We know that two Miles Morales #403 & Peter Parker #404, are mutually exclusive if the company can only invest in one of them. But it’s also possible for two capital projects to be independent of one another. Let’s say a Antique bronze temple dog 1900-1920 has a great deal of funding available for capital projects, and they are considering two different options.
