    Answer:

    No, the two events “being in high school” and “GPA above 3.0” are not independent.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If two events A,B are independent P(A|B)=P(A)

    P(high school | above 3.0) = \frac{14}{40}=0.35

    P(high school) = \frac{60}{100}=0.6                                                                                                

    So,0.35 ≠ 0.6

    Since P(high school | above 3.0) ≠ P(high school), the events “being in high school” and “GPA above 3.0” are not independent.
