11. 1 A combination lock can be unlocked by switching it to the left and stopping at digit a, then switching it to the right and stopping at digit b and, finally, switching it to the left and stopping at digit c. If the distinct digits a, b and c are chosen from among the numbers 0, 1, . . , 9, what is the number of possible combinations? 2 How many distinct groups of n symbols in a row can be formed, if each symbol is either a dot or a dash? 3 How many different three-digit numbers can be formed by using the numbers 0, 1, .

In fact, P B A P( A) P B P A P A∩ B ( ) (P(B) ) = ( P(B) ) = ( P)(B() ) = P( A). P AB = That is, if P(A), P(B) > 0, and one of the events is independent of the other, then this second event is also independent of the first. Thus, independence is a symmetric relation, and we may simply say that A and B are independent. In this case P(A ∩ B) = P(A)P(B) and we may take this relationship as the definition of independence of A and B. That is, DEFINITION 3 The events A, B are said to be (statistically or stochastically or in the probability sense) independent if P(A ∩ B) = P(A)P(B).
