A. If two events are dependent, then P(A/B) will equal _______________.
b. If two events are independent, then P(A and B) will equal _______________.
c. The rule for complementary events is useful for finding P(_______________).
d. If two events are not mutually exclusive, P(neither A nor B) will
equal 1 - [_______________________].

a. If two events are dependent, then P(A/B) will equal
=P(A and B)/P(B)=P(A)*P(B)/P(B)=P(A).
* If here "/" means ...
