**Unformatted text preview: **Determine whether the events E and F are independent or dependent. Justify your answer. {a} E: A person having a high GPA.
F: The same person being highly organized. C) A. E and F are independent because being highly organized has no effect on the probability of a person having a high GPA.
{g B. E and F are dependent because being highly organized can affect the probability of a person having a high GPA. C} C. E and F are independent because having a high GPA has no effect on the probability of a person being highly organized.
C} [.‘r. E and F are dependent because having a high GPA has no effect on the probability of a person being highly organized. {b} E: A randomly selected person coloring her hair black.
F: Another randomly selected person coloring her hair blond. C} A. E can affect the probability of F, even if the two people are randomly selected, so the events are dependent. C} B. E can affect the probability of F because the people were randomly selected, so the events are dependent. C} C. E cannot affect F because "person 1 coloring her hair black" could never occur, so the events are neither dependent nor independent.
{it} D. E cannot affect F and vice versa because the people were randomly selected, so the events are independent. {c} E: The war in a major oil—exporting country.
F: The price ofgasoline. C) A. The war in a major oil—exporting country could not affect the price of gasoline, so E and F are independent.
C} B. The price ofgasoline could affect the war in a major oil—exporting country, so E and F are dependent. {£1 C.
