    Two events A and B are independent events iff P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B).

    In your question, P(not A) = 0.25 and the P(not B) = 0.2 and P(not A and not B) = 0.95. P(not A) x P(not B) = 0.25 x 0.2 = 0.05 = P(not A and not B) ∴ A and B are independent events.

    i thought B was independent if P(A|B) = P(A'|B)

    Oh my gosh! There is something majorly wrong with my computer. I was almost finished with the explanation and it froze. I'll start over. Give me a few minutes.
