5 A standard deck of cards contains 52 cards. One card is selected from the deck.
6. Determine the required value of the missing probability to make the distribution a discrete probability distribution.
- 7. Determine whether the events E and F are independent or dependent. Justify your answer.
- E & F are dependent because being prone to road rage can affect the probability of a person having an at-fault accident.
B. E cannot affect F and vice versa because the people were randomly selected, so all events are independent.
C. The war in major oil exporting country could affect the price of gasoline, so E and F are dependent.
