Is there direct correspondence between the rule of multiplication of combinations and probability multiplication in case of independent events?
For combinations, whichever cup I choose, I can chose any spoon, which makes me
cups x spoon choices. If spoon choice would be affected by the cup, the relationship would be more complex. I guess that dependencies work the same in case of probability computations and you have the multiplication in the simplest, independent case. Is it right? How does it come out that multiplication comes out in both cases, despite, unlike combination multiplication, probability multiplication reduces the number of ways.
