Conditional Probability

  • #1
Given the following:
P(shop) = 0.25
P(rob) = 0.02
P(enter-store | !shop, !rob) = 0.01
P(enter-store | shop, !rob) = 0.80
P(enter-store | !shop, rob) = 0.50
P(enter-store | shop, rob) = 0.90
P(point-gun | rob) = 0.70
P(point-gun | !rob) = 0.01

Find:
a) P(enter-store)
b) P(shop | enter-store)
c) P(rob | enter-store)
d) P(shop | enter-store, point-gun)
e) P(rob | enter-store, point-gun)

The problem I'm having is given P(A|B, C), how to extract P(B) or even P(C), and so on.

Can I say: P(shop)P(rob) = .005, then P(enter-store|.005)? How do I get P(enter-store)?

Thanks,
Jay
