Addition Law
P(A u B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A n B) OR P(A n B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A u B)
1 of 8
Conditional Probability
P(A n B) = P(A n B) / P(A) ∴ P(A|B) = P(A n B) / P(B)
2 of 8
Multiplication Law
P(A n B) = P(B|A) x P(A) OR P(A n B) = P(A|B) x P(B)
3 of 8
Mutually Exclusive
P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) -- P(A n B) = 0
4 of 8
Multiplication Law for INDEPENDENT EVENTS
P(A n B) = P(A) x P(B) -> P(A|B) = P(A) = P(AnB) = P(A) P(B)
5 of 8
Another useful formula
P(A) = P(A n B) + P(A n B')
6 of 8
Another useful formula
P(A) = P(A|B) x P(B) + P(A|B') x P(B)
7 of 8
Another useful formula
P(A u B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A) x P(B)
