  • Two events $A$ and $B$ associated with a random experiment are independent if $P(A\cap B)=P(A) P(B)$
  • Also If $A$ and $B$ are independent then $A'$ and $B'$ are independent $P(A')=1-P(A)$
Since $A$ and $B$ are independent $A'$ and $B'$ are independent, By definition of independence of events:
$P(A'\cap B')=P(A')P(B')$ =$[1-P(A)][1-P(B)]$
