If the events are independent, the probability of both/all events occurring is determined by multiplying the probabilities of the individual events.

"At least one" = one *or* more.

1/4 * (3/4)^4 = ? (one correct)

(1/4)^2 * (3/4)^3 = ? (2 correct)

(1/4)^3 * (3/4)^2 = ? (3 correct)

(1/4)^4 * 3/4 = ? (4 correct)

(1/4)^5 = ? (5 correct)

Either-or probabilities are found by adding the individual probabilities.
