In this lesson, we learn what it means for two (or more) events to be independent. We'll formally learn, for example, why we say that the outcome of the flip of a fair coin is independent of the flips that came before it.
- Learn how to determine if two events are independent.
- Learn how to find the probability of the intersection of two events if the two events are independent.
- Learn how to determine if three or more events are pairwise independent.
- Learn how to determine if three or more events are mutually independent.
- Understand each step of the proofs contained in the lesson.
- Practice applying the techniques learned in the lesson to new problems.
