... c. Some basic logical identities that might help you: DeMorgan’s Laws i. P( (AB)’ ) = P( A’ B’ ) ii. P( (AB)’ ) = P( A’B’ ) d. Remember : P ( “at least one....” ) = 1 - P(“none”) P(“neither A nor B “ ) means P(A’ B’) e. Often probabilities are easiest to figure out if if you make a chart or ...

conditional probability

... Conditional Probability The probability that one event happens given that another event is already known to have happened is called a conditional probability. Suppose we know that event A has happened. Then the probability that event B happens given that event A has happened is denoted by P(B A). ...
