GENERAL PROBABILITY RULES

2
General addition rule P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A and B) Addition rule for disjoint events P(one or more of A, B, C) = P(A) + P(B) + P(C) Multiplication rule for independent events P(A and B) = P(A)P(B) Review of Previous Rules

3
Conditional probability – the probability of one event under the condition that we know another event. The | can be interpreted as given the information that

General addition rule P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A and B) P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A B) General multiplication rule P(A and B) = P(A)P(B given A) P(A B) = P(A)P(B|A) When P(A) > 0, Testing for independence : Two events A and B are independent if P(B|A) = P(B)

5
Two events A and B are independent if P(B|A) = P(B) Think back to your last quiz. When rolling a die and then flipping a coin, let event A be getting a 1 or 2 on the roll of the die. Let event B be getting an even number on the die. Are A and B independent? P(B|A) = (2/12)/(4/12) = ½ P(B) = 6/12 = ½ Therefore, A and B are independent.

Musical styles other than rock and pop are becoming more popular. A survey of college students find that 40% like country music, 30% like gospel music, and 10% like both. What is the conditional probability that a student likes gospel music if we know that he/she likes country music? C G 10%30%20% Conditional Probability P(G|C) = 0.1/0.4=0.25
