Describe events as subsets of a sample space (the set of outcomes) using characteristics (or categories) of the outcomes, or as unions, intersections, or complements of other events (“or,” “and,” “not”).

Understand that two events 𝐴 and 𝐵 are independent if the probability of 𝐴 and 𝐵 occurring together is the product of their probabilities, and use this characterization to determine if they are independent.

Understand the conditional probability of 𝐴 given 𝐵 as 𝑃(𝐴 and 𝐵)/𝑃(𝐵), and interpret independence of 𝐴 and 𝐵 as saying that the conditional probability of 𝐴 given 𝐵 is the same as the probability of 𝐴, and the conditional probability of 𝐵 given 𝐴 is the same as the probability of 𝐵.

Construct and interpret two‐way frequency tables of data when two categories are associated with each object being classified. Use the two‐way table as a sample space to decide if events are independent and to approximate conditional probabilities.

Recognize and explain the concepts of conditional probability and independence in everyday language and everyday situations.
