Hi! Im learning about the Counting Principle, and was confused on how to state whether an event was 'Independent' or 'Dependent'. Here are the scenarios:
a) Choosing the color and size of a pair of shoes.
b) Choosing the winner and the loser of a chess game.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So basically, B was dependent because it depended on who the loser was?
