Let event A = You roll an even number on the first cube.
Let event B = You roll a 2 on the second cube.
Are the events independent or dependent? Why?
O A. Dependent, because both cubes have six sides.
O B. Independent, because the outcome of the first roll doesn\'t affect
the outcome of the second roll.
O C. Independent, because they have no outcomes in common.
D. Dependent, because 2 is an even number.
Answer: B: Independent, because the outcome of the first roll doesn't affect the outcome of the second roll.
Events are independent when the outcome of one does not effect the other. Rolling dice for example: If you roll an even number on your first cube, there is no way that it will effect the roll on the second cube, hence the two events are independent.
