Learn the basics of independence and conditional dependence of events in a probability theory
Potential Use Cases
let the event A be 'I have a new phone'; event B be 'I have a new watch'; and event C be 'I am happy'; and suppose that having either a new phone or a new watch increases the probability of my being happy.
