Kristopher:

If I roll two dice, the each die can roll a 3. Niether die influences the
other, so they're independent. And since I can roll a 3 on each
simultaneously, they are not disjoint events.

I'm on Chapter 6 of YMS, and I'm not completely clear on independent &amp; disjoint events. I've done exercise 45, and I understand that you can have 2 events that are not independent and not disjoint, but what would be an example of 2 events that are independent but not disjoint?
