Are owning a bike and owning a car independent events? Why or why not?
Dependent,since knowing a person has one of these items changes the probability that the person
has the other item.

Determining the independence of events can sometimes be done by becoming familiar with the context
in which the events occur and the nature of the events. There are also some ways of determining
independence of events based on equivalent probabilities.
• Two events, A and B, are independent if P(A and B) = P(A)*P(B)
• Additionally, two events, A and B, are independent if P(A|B)=(P(A and B))/(P(B))=P(A)
Use these two ways of determining independent events to determine independence in the problem
below. You will be given one chance to answer correctly.
P(A and B)=3/5
P(A)=1/2
P(B)=3/10
A and B are
independent events
not independent events
