The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

Independent events are events where the probability of one does not impact the probability of the other. An example is the probability that a person plays baseball and the probability that they own a house. Dependent events are events whose probability changes based on whether or not the other one occurs. An example is the probability of a person buying a burger based on the fast food joint that they go to.
