The purpose of this article is to generate new theorems of probability and to find out some applications of these theorems. In this case, suppose that we have a covered basket that contains many dices. In many blind tests, we will reach in and pull out a dice and set it on the table on one row from left to right. It is clear, each dice has six events (choices) including 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
What is the application of these theorems (1 and 2)?
