Lesson: Independent Events Mathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate probabilities for independent events.
Sample Question Videos
In the given sample space , the probabilities are shown for combinations of events and occurring. Are and independent events?
Which of the following are two independent events?
A CD company uses the following procedure to check if the CD is acceptable for data storage. Data must read back immediately after being written. If the readback fails three times, then that CD is eliminated as unacceptable. The probability of a successful readback on a CD is 0.98. Assuming that the readbacks are independent, find the probability that an acceptable portion will not be eliminated.
