Problem 1147

Determine whether the following pair of events are dependent or independent.

Two teams from different sport play a game. A is the event that the first team wins, and B is the event the second team wins.




Two events, E and F, are dependent if the outcome of event E influences the outcome of event F, and vice versa. Events E and F are independent if the outcome of E does not affect the outcome of event F, and vice versa.

The fact that the first team wins does not influence the result of the second team, and vice versa.

Therefore, the two events are independent.
