Independent and Conditional

Probabilty can give us 2 types of outcome, INDEPENDENT and CONDITIONAL.

INDEPENDENT PROBABILTY are outcomes that are not affected by any other. For example, the probabilty of getting a 6 is not affected by previous rolls.


CONDITIONAL PROBABILTY are outcomes that are affected by previous outcomes/probabilty. For example, if there were 3 black and 2 red counters in a bag and one were to be chosen at random and not replaced then there would be 1 less counter, therefore the probabilty would change.

Counters in a Bag!

5 Counters in a Bag. 3 blue and 2 green. If a counter were to be taken out and REPLACED, then it would be INDEPENDENT, whereas, if it were not to be replaced, it would be CONDITIONAL.
