    19. Independent events are events whose outcomes have nothing to do with each other. The outcome of one event does not depend on the outcome of the other event.

    Dependent events have outcomes that depend on each other, meaning the outcome of one event will affect the outcome of the other event.

    With the above in mind, what do you think is the answer to 19.?

    I think its independent because when you flip the coin its random the number has nothing to do with the outcome.

    You are correct that it's independent, but your reason is not correct. The independent part has to do with both events, picking a number from 1,000 to 5,000 and flipping a coin. These two events are independent because no matter which number from 1,000 to 5,000 you pick, that choice does not affect the outcome of the coin toss.
