To show that A is independent of B, a is independent of C, and B is independent of C: P ( A B ) = P ( { 2 } ) = 0 . 25 which is in fact = (0 . 5)(0 . 5) = P ( A ) P ( B ) P ( A C ) = P ( { 1 } ) = 0 . 25 which is in fact = (0 . 5)(0 . 5) = P ( A ) P ( C ) P ( B C ) = P ( { 3 } ) = 0 . 25 which is in fact = (0 . 5)(0 . 5) = P ( B ) P ( C ) But the nal condition for independence does not hold: P ( A B C ) = P ( ) = 0 which is NOT (0 . 5)(0 . 5)(0 . 5) = P ( A ) P ( B ) P ( C ) . Thus { A,B,C } is not a family of independent events. 1...
