The image above represents independent events.

To compute for independent events, four essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Number of Times Event A can occur** **(****x _{A}), Number of Times Event B can occur (x_{B}**

**)**and

**Total Number of All Possible Outcomes**

**(**

**N).**

The formula for calculating independent events:

P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)

Where;

P(A and B) = Independent events

^{xA} = Number of Times Event A can occur

^{xB} = Number of Times Event B can occur

N = Total Number of All Possible Outcomes

P(A) = ^{xA} ⁄ _{N}

P(B) = ^{xB} ⁄ _{N}

Let’s solve an example;

Find the independent events when the number of times event A can occur is 11, number of times event B can occur is 15 and the total number of all possible outcomes is 22.

This implies that;

^{xA} = Number of Times Event A can occur = 11

^{xB} = Number of Times Event B can occur = 15

N = Total Number of All Possible Outcomes = 22

P(A and B) = P(A) x P(B)

P(A and B) = ^{xA} ⁄ _{N} x ^{xB} ⁄ _{N
}P(A and B) = ^{11} ⁄ _{22} x ^{15} ⁄ _{22
}P(A and B) = ^{(11)(15)} ⁄ _{(22)(22)
}P(A and B) = ^{165} ⁄ _{484
}Dividing the numerator and denominator by **11
**P(A and B) =

^{15}⁄

_{44 }P(A and B) = 0.3409

Therefore, the **independent events **is **0.3409.**

Nickzom Calculator – **The Calculator Encyclopedia** is capable of calculating the independent events.

Once, you have obtained the calculator encyclopedia app, proceed to the **Calculator Map, **then click on **Probability**** **under **Mathematics****.**

Now, Click on **Independent Events **under **Probability**

The screenshot below displays the page or activity to enter your values, to get the answer for the independent events according to the respective parameters which are the **Number of Times Event A can occur** **(****x _{A}), Number of Times Event B can occur (x_{B}**

**)**and

**Total Number of All Possible Outcomes**

**(**

**N).**

Now, enter the values appropriately and accordingly for the parameters as required by the **Number of Times Event A can occur(x _{A})** is

**11**,

**Number of Times Event B can occur (x**is

_{B})**15**and

**Total Number of All Possible Outcomes(N)**is

**22**.
