    happened to = 碰巧 / 剛好

    by chance = 碰巧 / 偶然地

    因此, "happened to" 與 "by chance" 意思相若, 故絕大部份情況下, 都可以互換!

    如 以上句子 :-

    She happened to be out when we called.

    ≡ She was out by chance when we called.

    One more example :-

    ===============

    I happened to meet an old friend at the railway station this morning.

    I met an old friend by chance at the railway station this morning.
