Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if they are independent then \[P(E'F)=P(E')P(F)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1should be pretty clear that if the events are independent, then so are the compliments etc q

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm i see my mistake

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find\[P(E'F)=\frac{P(E'\cap F)}{P(F)}=\frac{P(E')P(F)}{P(F)}=P(E')\] which is a silly way of saying that if E' and F are independent then \(P(E'F)=P(E')\)
