    Show that if events E and F are independent, then the events E and not F are also independent.

    E and F are independent means:

    P(E and F) = P(E)*P(F)

    and you want to use that fact to show that it will also be true that

    P(E and ~F) = P(E)*P(~F)

    ok, so now you can get to doing that.
