Independent events

Statistics

When two events are independent to each other, it means that the occurrences of one event do not affect the other event’s probability.

For instance, the occurrence of getting a six on a die is independent from drawing an ace from a deck of cards.

In order to find the probability of both independent events occurring together, we multiply the probability of the events together.

P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)
