The conditional probability of an event A given another event B is the probability that A occurs if it's known that B occurs. Conditional probability is fundamental to probabilistic modeling, since it gives a way of accounting for observed evidence.


This concept has the prerequisites:


  • Know the definition of conditional probability
  • Know how the joint probability of a configuration of random variables decomposes as a product of the conditional probabilities
