Example 10 A die is thrown. If E is the event ‘the number appearing is a multiple of 3’ and F be the event ‘the number appearing is even’ then find whether E and F are independent ? Two event A and B are independent if P(A ∩ B) = P(A) . P(B) A die is thrown S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6} Let two events be E : the number appear is a multiple of 3 F : the number appearing is even E ∩ F = the number appearing is an even multiple of 3 = {3} So, P(E ∩ F) = 1﷮6﷯ Now, P(E) . P(F) = 1﷮3﷯ × 1﷮2﷯ = 1﷮6﷯ Since, P(E ∩ F) = P(E) . P(F) Therefore, E & F are independent events
