# If events a and b are independent, what must be done to find the probability of events a and b?

We will use the concept of independent probability theorem to find the probability of events a and b

## Answer: For independent events a and b, P(a U b) = P(a) × P(b)

Let us see how we will use the concept of the independent events theorem to find the probability of events a and b.

**Explanation:**

Since events a and b are independent events, hence the occurrence of one event will not hamper the occurring of the other event.

Probability of events a and b can be mathematically expressed as P(a U b)
