Independent

For two events A and B, if the occurrence of either event in no way affects the probability of the occurrence of the other event, then the two events are considered to be  independent  events.

Explanation:

Consider the idea of flipping a coin and rolling a dice. If these actions are separate (i.e. they don't bump into each other), then one object won't affect the other. Hence, one probability won't change the other. We consider these events to be independent.

In contrast, let's say we're pulling out cards from a deck. If we don't put the first card back, then the future probabilities of other cards will change. This is considered dependent.
