Probability with conditionals

  1. Oct 8, 2015 #1
    Given P(A), P(B), and P(A n B) . Find the P(A' n B' | A')
    We know P(AuB) = P(A)+P(B)- P(A n B)
    P(A' n B'|A') = P(A' n B' n A' ) / P(A') = P(A' n B') / P(A') = P(A u B)' /P(A') = [1-P(A u B) ]/ P(A') =
    [1-P(A u B)] / [1-P(A)] Correct?
