Bayes rule and joint probability

  1. Jun 30, 2014 #1
    I try to understand the following equation but I can not.
    I have basic knowledge about Bayes rule and joint probability.
    How can we produce this result? I would appreciate any help.

    p(R|q,x)/p(NR|q,x)=[p(R|q) / p(NR|q) ] * [p(x|R,q) / p(x|NR,q)]

    I have some trouble with your equation, since you haven't defined the symbols. Which are random variables, etc.? It looks to me q is irrelevant.
