State True or False for the statements in the Exercise.

Two independent events are always mutually exclusive.

Answer :

False

If A and B are independent events. It implies-


P(A B) = P(A)P(B)


Through the above equation we can’t prove in any way that


P(AB) = P(A) + P(B)


It is only possible if either P(A) or P(B) = 0,which is not given in question.


So, it is a false statement.
