Exercise 6

Using the formal definition of independence, determine whether events A and B are independent or dependent.

Given two spinners (this sort of thing) that each have the numbers 1, 2, and 3 (in place of the colors), we spin two numbers.

Event A: Spinning an odd number on the first spinner.

Event B: The sum of the two numbers being odd.

Okay, so you ready to take this exercise for a spin? It even still has that "new problem smell"...
