if X and Y are independent then E(X)E(Y)=E(XY)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have found a lot of examples for this for example if X-values gives tail or head and Y is the sides of a square

but i cant find an example for a dependent function where E(X)E(Y)=E(XY) does not apply and I want to have an example tht shows mathematically that E(X)E(Y)=E(XY) does not apply- Does anyone have such an illustrating example that describers this mathematically?
