-P(paid) = 10/26 and P(paid|game) = 5/14.

-The events “paid” and “game” are not independent.

Step-by-step explanation:

Total number of apps = 10 + 16 = 26

Thus;

P(paid) = 10/26

Now, it says she paid for 5 out if 14 which were game apps. Thus;

P(paid|game) = 5/14

Now, Two events are independent if the result of the second event is not affected by the result of the first event. If A and B are independent events, the probability of both events occurring is the product of the probabilities of the individual events.

In this question, paid and game are not affected by each other and the probability of of P(paid) and P(paid|game) occurring are not products of each individual event paid and game. Thus, they are not independent.

10/26 , 5/14 , not independent
