Clarification in Video regarding intersection formula[@0:55] in Conditional probability video

The narrator points out that they had said in the previous lecture that the intersection of 2 independent events is equal to the product of their individual probabilities. But I cannot find the aforementioned reference in the previous video(Dependent and independent events video).

Hey Anantharaman,

Thank you for reaching out!

I also don't seem to be able to find a reference where this statement is mentioned prior to the "Conditional Probability" lecture. We apologize for this inaccuracy. Such mistakes could happen but, I hope, they don't interfere with the understanding of the material.

Kind regards,

He actually pointed that out in the very first chapter: "The Basics of Probability", in the second video: "What is the Probability Formula". Check 5:33 of that video.
