I would say that A and B are independent because both

P(B|A)=0.58 and the P(B) = 0.58 are equal

and

P(A|B)=0.58 and the P(A) = 0.58 are equal

asked • 12/10/19Let Events A and B be described as follows:

P(A) = computer will break

P(B) = will listen to music

The probability that your computer will break is 58% and so is the probability that you will listen to music. The probability that your computer will break and you will listen to music is 33.64 % Which statement is accurate about these two events?

A. The two events are not independent because P(A) + P(B) = 0.9164 and the P(AandB) = 0.3364 are not equal.

B. The two events are independent because P(B|A)=0.58 and the P(B) = 0.58 are equal.

C.The two events are not independent because P(A) * P * (B) = 0.195 and the P(AardB) = 0.3364 are not equal .

D.The two events are independent because P(A|B)=0.58 and the P(A) = 0.58 are equal.
