Independent & Dependent

Independent events are defined as outcomes that are not affected by other outcomes. In other words, the flip of the penny does not affect the flip of the nickel, and vice versa. Dependent events are outcomes that are affected by other outcomes. In other words, pulling a blue marble from a hat and leaving it out will affect the probability of the remaining marbles on the next draw.
