If you have two events A and B that are independent, then it is said that $p(A)p(B)=p(A\cap B)$, and illustrated in a venn diagram as two areas that do not overlap.
The opposite goes for dependent events A and B, where if A is dependent on B, then $p(A|B)p(B)=p(A\cap B)$ and in the venn diagram, the areas representing these events do overlap.
My questions are:
- Are there any instances where event A does overlap B but is not dependent on B?
- Are there instances where A does not overlap with B, but is dependent on B?
My guess here is that there are no such cases, where if one instance is satisfied then it by definition calls for the other. For instance, regarding question 1, if A overlaps B, then a dependence between the two exists. For question 2, if A does not overlap B, then it cannot be dependent on it.
Are these ideas correct, or are there any situations where this might not work?
