Two events E and F are independent if the occurrence of event E in a probability experiment does not affect the probability of event F
. In other words, if E and F are independent, then the probability of F occurring is the same whether or not E has occurred. For example, if flipping a coin twice, the probability of getting heads on the second flip is independent of whether or not heads was obtained on the first flip.
