The probability that a guy1 orders a dessert with the meal is about 0.08. The probability that guy2 orders a bottle beverage is 0.14. The joint probability that a guy3 gets both is 0.0112. Is ordering a dessert independent of ordering a bottle bev?

could you please explain to me why it is dependent? I tried understanding this for a while, but an explanation would be great if you can tell me. I would appreciate that.
