Mutually exclusive refers to the relationship between two or more events that cannot occur at the same time.
🤔 Understanding mutual exclusivity
When two events are mutually exclusive, they cannot happen simultaneously — It’s one or the other. The existence of mutually exclusive events results in an inherent Kate Spade POLKA DOT Blanket | White Super Soft Fleece Spot Print Throw, which is the cost of losing out on one of the events that can’t both happen at the same time.

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 Dallas Cowboys NFL Royal Plush Raschel Super Soft Throw Blanket 60"x 80", 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.
