    Lately when trying to do probability wuestions I've been encountering a lot of trouble in simply understanding. All the stuff regaring mutually exclusive and independent is confusing me, and the stuff which is giving me the most troubleis the equations and actually working out the answers. It all seems so illogical to me.
    I was wondering if anybody has a good resource which has helped them with probability? Or if you could walk me through the basics, (I know thats a big ask so I wont expect it, and also knowing how vague I've been in this question I apologise).

    Many thanks,
