Probability of Independent Events

Students learn that two events are independent if the outcome of the first event does not affect the outcome of the second event. For example, flipping a coin twice. And the probability of independent events can be found by multiplying the probability of the first event times the probability of the second event. For example, when flipping a coin twice, the probability of getting heads then tails is 1/2 times 1/2, which equals 1/4.
