Given that p(A)=0.6 and p(B)= 0.7 and that A and B are independent, find the probabilty of(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a. A or B

b. A and B

I don't understand this because if 2 events are independent, then they are not mutually exclusive. So, A and B does not = 0, but that's all I know and I need A and B to solve for A or B. Help! Thanks
