Understand the conditional probability of A given B as P(A and B)/P(B), and interpret independence of A and B as saying that the conditional probability of A given B is the same as the probability of A, and the conditional probability of B given A is the same as the probability of B.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSS.CP.A.5

Recognize and explain the concepts of conditional probability and independence in everyday language and everyday situations.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSS.CP.B.6

Find the conditional probability of A given B as the fraction of B's outcomes that also belong to A, and interpret the answer in terms of the model.

This Tutorial is designed for High School Students grades 9-12 studying the rules and applications of conditional probability.
