    Hello,
    Sometimes in Statistics 1 A-Levels I encounter some probability questions as part of the normal distribution problems, and I have a problem in considering whether two events are independent or not. I read once that when readings are chosen from a distribution randomly I can consider these two events to be independent, is that true? If not, can anyone give me some techniques to identify independent variables and whether I can multiply the probabilities of each event directly when asked about intersection ?

    You will probably get more responses if you post a specific example question that you’ve had problems with.
