## How do you calculate the probability of dependent events?

Dependent events: Two events are dependent when the outcome of the first event influences the outcome of the second event. The probability of two dependent events is the product of the probability of X and the probability of Y AFTER X occurs.

## What is the formula for P A and B?

Formula for the probability of A and B (independent events): p(A and B) = p(A) * p(B).

**What is a dependent event in statistics?**

When two events are dependent events, one event influences the probability of another event. A dependent event is an event that relies on another event to happen first.

**How do you find P AUB given PA and PB?**

If A and b are two different events then, P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A ∩ B). Consider the Venn diagram. P(A U B) is the probability of the sum of all sample points in A U B. Now P(A) + P(B) is the sum of probabilities of sample points in A and in B.

### How do you find the probability of A or B or C?

P(A ∪ B ∪ C) = P(A) + P(B) + P(C) − P(A ∩ B) − P(A ∩ C) − P(B ∩ C) + P(A ∩ B ∩ C).

### What does ∩ mean in probability?

intersection

The symbol “∩” means intersection. This formula is used to quickly predict the result. When events are independent, we can use the multiplication rule, which states that the two events A and B are independent if the occurrence of one event does not change the probability of the other event.

**What is an example of a Dependant event?**

An event that is affected by previous events. Example: removing colored marbles from a bag. Each time you remove a marble the chances of drawing out a certain color will change.

**How do you calculate AUB probability?**

#### What does a ∩ B represent in Pa ∩ B?

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

#### How do you write probability formula?

The probability formula is used to compute the probability of an event to occur. To recall, the likelihood of an event happening is called probability….Basic Probability Formulas.
