The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

Independent events: The chances that I flip heads the first time that I flip the coin and the odds that I flip heads the second time. Dependent events: The odds that I draw a 2 of hearts from a deck and the odds that the second card I draw is a 4 of hearts. Note that with the independent events, the occurrence of one of the events does not affect the probability of the other. Contrarily, with dependent events, the occurrence of the first event changes the odds of the second event occurring, for there is one fewer card in the deck after I draw the first card.
