Independent Event :

Consider two events A and B. If these two events satisfy the condition P(A∩B ) = P(A) * P(B), then they are called independent events.


Formula :


Independent Event formula

Example :

A die is tossed twice. The first time, it can get either 1 or 2. Second time, it can be 3 or 4 or 5. So what is the probability? P(E1) = 2/6 = 1/3 and P(E2) = 3/6 = 1/2. The P(E1) and P(E2) are independent events, so P(E1 ∩ E2) = P(E1) * P(E2) = 1/3 * 1/2 = 1/6
