Unformatted text preview: Learning Objectives Define conditional probability Calculate conditional probabilities for discrete events (e.g., coin tosses). Define independence Example Suppose that two doctors test all patients coming into a blood donation center for anemia. Suppose that the first doctor diagnoses 10% of all patients as positive, the second doctor diagnoses 17% of all the patients as positive, and both doctors diagnose 8% of all patients as positive. What is the conditional probability that the second doctor makes a positive diagnosis of anemia given that the first doctor makes a negative diagnosis? Conditional Probability Reason based on partial information Conditional probability of A given B P ( A  B ) Example Roll a fair sixsided dice P( outcome is 6 ) = 1/6 Example Roll a fair sixsided dice What is P(outcome is 6outcome is even)?...
