In this "minesweeper grid:"

...I can calculate the probability of the square with the question mark being a mine at 2 in 3 using just the box numbered "3," or 1 in 2 using just the box numbered "4."

It seems to me that knowing this, I should be able to calculate a "hybrid" probability that is somewhere between 0.5 and 0.67. Any ideas on how I can do this, or what one would even call such a calculation?

Thanks!!
