Determine whether the events E and F are independent or dependent. Justify your answer.

F) The same person having a credit card.

A) E and F are dependent because going into debt has no effect on the probability of a person having a credit card.

B) E and F are independent because having a credit card has no effect on the probability of a person going into debt.

C) E and F are independent because going into debt has no effect on the probability of a person having a credit card.

D) E and F are dependent because having a credit card can affect the probability of a person going into debt.

B)

E) A randomly selected person coloring her hair black.

F) Another randomly selected person coloring her hair blond.

A) E can affect the probability of F because the people were randomly selected, so the events are dependent.

B) E cannot affect F because â€œperson 1 coloring her hair black,â€ could never occur, so the events are neither dependent nor independent.

C) E can affect the probability of F, even if the two people are randomly selected, so the events are dependent.

D) E cannot affect F and vice versa because the people were randomly selected, so the events are independent.

C)

A) The unusually foggy weather in London on May 8 could affect the number of car accidents in London on May 8.

B) The number of car accidents in London on May 8 could affect the unusually foggy weather in London on May 8, so E and F are dependent.

C) The unusually foggy weather in London on May 8 could not affect the number of car accidents in London on May 8, so E and F are independent.
