Independent Events
Events in which the outcome of one event does not affect the
outcome of the other event.
Dependent and independent probabilities ...
A bag contains 6 marbles, 3 red and 3 blue. A marble is chosen at
random and then REPLACED back in the bag. A second marble is
selected, what is the probability that it is blue?

Dependent Events
If the outcome of one event affects the outcome of another
event, then the events are said to be dependent events.
