 Dependent Events:  Two or more events in which the outcome of one event does affect the outcome of the other event or events.
Suppose you choose a queen from a standard deck of playing cards, and you do not replace the card. The probability of drawing another card has been affected since there is one less card in the deck. The outcome of the first card drawn influences the outcome of the second card drawn. Thus, the events are dependent.

This is a picture of a playing card featuring one of the queens.
