## What is the difference between Given and and in probability?

In probability, there’s a very important distinction between the words and and or. And means that the outcome has to satisfy both conditions at the same time. Or means that the outcome has to satisfy one condition, or the other condition, or both at the same time.

### What does pa given B mean?

Conditional probability

Conditional probability: p(A|B) is the probability of event A occurring, given that event B occurs.

**What is the difference between P A or B and the P A and B?**

p(a,b) = the probability that event a and b happen at the same time. p(a|b) = the probability that event a happens due to the event b happens.

**How do you write PA and B?**

Formula for the probability of A and B (independent events): p(A and B) = p(A) * p(B). If the probability of one event doesn’t affect the other, you have an independent event. All you do is multiply the probability of one by the probability of another.

## How do you find PA and B given PA or B?

p(A and B) = p(A) * p(B) = 0.4 * 0.0008 = 0.00032. That’s it! The formula is a little more complicated if your events are dependent, that is if the probability of one event effects another.

### How to find P A+B?

P (A∩B) = Probability of both independent events “A” and “B” happening together.

**What are the principles of probability?**

Basic Principles of Probability. Definitions. Probability is a measure of how likely it is (or how probable it is) that a given event will occur. The more likely an event is, the higher its probability. The sample space is the set of possible outcomes within a given context.

**How do you calculate probability in statistics?**

Calculate the probability Once all the numbers are obtained, calculate the probability. For example, the probability of getting at least one head when both coins are tossed in the air at the same time is: P(Head) = 3/4 = 0.75.

## What are the rules of probability?

Two Basic Rules of Probability. When calculating probability, there are two rules to consider when determining if two events are independent or dependent and if they are mutually exclusive or not. The Multiplication Rule. If A and B are two events defined on a sample space, then: P(A AND B) = P(B)P(A\\|B).
