Are the two events dependent or independent? Explain.

a. Toss a dime, and then toss a quarter.
b. Pick a card from a deck of cards. Keep the card and pick anot

    I remember learning this. I'll show you how to do number 1.

    Think, does tossing the dime affect the outcome of tossing the quarter.

    And for number 2, would taking out a card from the deck affect what card you would get next?

    If you need more help, respond again. Hope I helped!

    The answer is no the first card doesn't affect what card you could draw next. Just like the dime doesn't affect the quarter. They are two different variables.
