Independent Events Events can be "Independent", meaning each event is not affected by any other events. Example: Tossing a coin. Each toss of a coin is a perfect isolated thing. What it did in the past will not affect the current toss. The chance is simply 1-in-2, or 50%, just like ANY toss of the coin. So each toss is an Independent...
