1 Introduction to Business Statistics Lecture 4 Bayes Theorem Probability Table: Two sets of mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive events with their joint probabilities cross listed in a table.

Event forming the second set of branches must be entered at the tip of each of the sets of first branches. Conditional probabilities, given the relevant first branch, must be entered. Again, the branches must be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive. 3. If there are further sets of branches, the probabilities must be conditional on all preceding events. The branches must be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive.
