## Are events in a sample space independent?

Indepedent events: An event is a subset of a sample space. Events may or may not be independent; according to the definition, two events, A and B, are independent iff P(A∩B) = P(A) P(B).

### What is the sample space of an event?

The sample space of a random experiment is the collection of all possible outcomes. An event associated with a random experiment is a subset of the sample space. The probability of any outcome is a number between 0 and 1.

#### What are 2 examples of independent events?

Some other examples of independent events are:

- Landing on heads after tossing a coin AND rolling a 5 on a single 6-sided die.
- Choosing a marble from a jar AND landing on heads after tossing a coin.
- Choosing a 3 from a deck of cards, replacing it, AND then choosing an ace as the second card.

**How do you know if A and B are independent events?**

28. Events A and B are independent if the equation P(A∩B) = P(A) · P(B) holds true. You can use the equation to check if events are independent; multiply the probabilities of the two events together to see if they equal the probability of them both happening together.

**Are E and G mutually exclusive?**

Assume that each outcome is equally likely. List the outcomes in E and G. Are E and G mutually exclusive? No, because the events E and G have at least one outcome in common.

## Are two events independent?

In probability, we say two events are independent if knowing one event occurred doesn’t change the probability of the other event. For example, the probability that a fair coin shows “heads” after being flipped is 1 / 2 1/2 1/2 .

### How do you list a sample space?

You could write the sample space another way, by just adding up the two dice. For example [1][1] = 2 and [1][2] = 3. That would give you a sample space of {2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}.

#### How do you find a sample space?

First, you need to determine the size of the sample space. The size of the sample space is the total number of possible outcomes. For example, when you roll 1 die, the sample space is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. So the size of the sample space is 6.

**What are examples of independence?**

The definition of independence is freedom from the control or influence of others. When kids grow up and move out and start making their own decisions, this is an example of independence.

**What are some real life examples of dependent and independent events?**

Winning a card game and running out of bread. Finding a dollar on the street and buying a lottery ticket; finding a dollar isn’t dictated by buying a lottery ticket, nor does buying the ticket increase your chances of finding a dollar. Growing the perfect tomato and owning a cat.
