3 pieces of Information to determine probability of a positive test result being accurate., #1, #2, #3

A coincidence is a surprising concurrence of events, perceived as meaningfully related, with no apparent causal connection.

Two Conditions for Valid Probabilities

Probabilities for Equally Likely Simple Events

Key Terms, Sample Space, Event, Simple Event

One event is the complement of another event if the two events do not contain any of the same simple events and together they cover the entire sample space. For an event A, the notation A^c represents the complement of A.

Two events are mutually exclusive they do not contain any of the same simple events (outcomes). The term disjoint is also used in the same regard.

Independent

Dependent

The event B, given that the event A occurs, is the long-run relative frequency with which event B occurs when circumstances are such that a also occurs. This probability is written as P(B|A)

Larger samples do not require replacement, as the sample size would make the outcome insigificant.
