Conditional Probability is a part of the VCE Maths Methods topic Probability and Statistics and subtopic Discrete Random Variables. This post will help us calculate and interpret the probabilities of various events associated with a given probability distribution.
Conditional probability is the possibility of a certain event occurring, based on the condition that another certain event occurs first. It is calculated by multiplying the probability of the previous event, by the probability of the second.
This video will assist us in gaining an understanding of conditional probability and independence.
The following video introduces conditional probability using probability trees.
