About This Chapter
Introduction to Conditional Probability & Diagrams - Chapter Summary
Strengthen your understanding of conditional probability and diagrams and how they are used in statistics and mathematics by reviewing the lessons in this chapter. You'll be able to study definitions and examples of different diagrams to make sure you have a firm grasp on how they are used. Topics covered in this chapter include:
- Mutual exclusivity
- The history and types of Venn diagrams
- How to calculate possible outcomes
- Factor trees
Your studies are taught by our expert instructors, and the lessons are designed to help you familiarize yourself with the vocabulary words associated with these topics. You'll also have the chance to assess your understanding of conditional probability and diagrams by completing the self-assessment quizzes and chapter test.
1. Conditional Probability: Definition & Uses
We know a coin can land on either heads or tails. But what would happen if one coin flip changed the next? In this lesson, we'll look at events that are dependent on each other, and we'll learn how to calculate the probability of two events occurring in a combined manner.
2. Mutually Exclusive in Statistics: Definition, Formula & Examples
In this lesson, we will discuss mutually exclusive events in statistics. We will talk about the definition, give many real-life examples, and compare mutually exclusive events to independent events.
3. What Are Venn Diagrams in Math? - History, Types & Examples
In this lesson, you will learn what Venn diagrams are in math. You will also learn the history behind them and will be given the different types illustrated with examples. Following this lesson will be a brief quiz to test your knowledge.
4. Venn Diagrams: Subset, Disjoint, Overlap, Intersection & Union
The Venn diagram was introduced by John Venn. Yes, the Venn diagram is named after a real person! His idea was to show sets in terms of pictures. The Venn diagram is now used in many fields, including mathematics. Let's take a look at John Venn's idea.
5. Calculating Possible Outcomes: Definition & Formula
After completing this lesson, you will be able to state the fundamental counting principle and use it to calculate the number of possible outcomes for multiple events. You will also be able to use the fundamental counting principle to determine the number of permutations of a distinct set of objects.
6. What is a Factor Tree? - Definition & Example
In this lesson, you'll review factors and prime numbers. You'll learn what a factor tree is and see how it works to reveal any number's prime factorization. Then you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.
