The definition of independence in probability: Event A and B are independent if and only if P(A ∩ B) = P(A) x P(B) If A and B are independent then P( A | B ) = [ P(A) x P(B) ] / P(B) = P(A) for P(B) > 0 P( B | A) = [ P(A) x P(B)] / P(A) = P(B) for P(A) > 0 Check for Independence of Two Events When A and…
