1. If the probability of the hockey team winning is 0.65, then the probability of the team losing is 1-0.65=0.35, by Kolmogorov's third axiom.

2. The multiplication rule:

The probability of two independent events happening is the product of the individual probabilities.

Example:

A. Both teams will win:

P(H∩B)=0.65*0.7=0.455

3. Since all possible outcomes are included in the four cases A,B,C, and D, their probabilities must add up to 1.0
