myTestBook.com Math Reading Science Practice Test for Grade 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5    
  you are taking the following test:

 
Grade: 8,    Subject: Math,    Topic: Probability and Statistics Independent and Dependent events
Question 1:
Select the correct definition of independent events in probability.

Two events, A and B, are independent events if occur at different time.Two events, A and B, are independent events if occur at same time.

Two events, A and B, are independent events if the fact that probability A occurring does not affect the probability of B occurring.Two events, A and B, are independent events if the fact that probability A occurring does affect the probability of B occurring.
 
Question 2:
Select the correct definition of dependent events in probability.

Two events, A and B, are independent events if occur at different time.Two events, A and B, are independent events if occur at same time.

Two events, A and B, are independent events if the fact that probability A occurring does not affect the probability of B occurring.Two events, A and B, are independent events if the fact that probability A occurring does affect the probability of B occurring.

Question 6:
There are 50 boys and 50 girls in a class. One student is selected for class president and other student is selected for class vice-president. What kind of event are these in the calculation of probability?

IndependentDependent

BothNone
 
Question 7:
If the probability of the occurrence of an event is P1 and the probability of the occurrence of another event is P2, what is the probability that both events will occur?

P1 + P2P1 − P2

P1 × P2P1 ÷ P2
