Problem 3BSC

Independent and Dependent Events True or false: The event of finding that your car’s radio works and the event of finding that your car’s air conditioner works are independent events because they work separately from each other. Explain.

Solution 3BSC

False, the event of finding that your car’s radio works and the event of finding you’re your car’s air conditioner works are not independent events. Since car’s air conditioner and car’s radio take power from the same system so there is greater probability that when radio is not working air conditioner will also not work.
