Conditional Probability and Independence Learning Targets I can use the multiplication rule for independent events to compute probabilities. 2. I can compute conditional probabilities. 1. 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). Independent Events Two events A and B are independent if the occurrence of one event has no effect on the chance that the other event will happen. In other words events a and B are independent if P(A | B) = P(A) and P(B | A) = P(B). Dependent Events Multiplication rule for independent events. If A and B are independent events, then the probability that A and B both occur is General Multiplication Rule Conditional Probability Formula To find the conditional probability P(B A), use the formula First Trimester Screen The First Trimester Screen is a noninvasive test given during the first trimester of pregnancy to determine if there are specific chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus. According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in November 2005, approximately 5% of normal pregnancies will receive a positive result. Among 100 women with normal pregnancies, what is the probability that there will be at least 1 false positive?
