1/5/10 Using Probability Tree P(H) = .1 P(M) = .5 P(L) = .4 P(C| M) =.02 P(C’| M) =.98 P(C|L) =.1 P(C’|L) =.99 P(C|H) =.1 P(C’| M) =.9
1/5/10 P(Cancer) = P(Cancer and High) + P(Cancer and Medium) + P(Cancer and Low) = 0.01 + 0.01 + 0.004 = 0.024 Note that we can multiply P(A) P(B|A) P(C|A and B) P(A and B and C)
