Is the probability for a particular event, out of a set of events, equal to the total [normalized?] probability for all permutations of events from the set, including the particular event?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Say you have a 2 x 2 square with cells numbered 1 to 4. I am asking if the probability for square 1, p(1) is equal to the total probability for its permutations, p(1,2)+p(1,3)+p(1,4)+p(1,2,3)+p(1,2,4)+p(1,3,4)+p(1,2,3,4). Or should I divide this by the number of permutations?
