Events are independent if the outcome of one event does not affect the outcome of another. For example, if you throw a die and a coin, the number on the die does not affect whether the result you get on the coin.
If A and B are independent events, then the probability of A happening AND the probability of B happening is P( A) × P( B).
P( A and B) = P( A) × P( B)
