### Bayes' Theorem

1 Bayes' Theorem by Mario F. Triola The concept of conditional probability is introduced in Elementary Statistics. We noted that the conditional probability of an event is a probability obtained with the additional information that some other event has already occurred.

### Bayes' Theorem

An Example Suppose that a test for a particular disease has a very high success rate: if a tested patient has the disease, the test accurately reportsthis, a 'positive', 99% of the time (or, with probability 0.99), and if a tested patient does not have the disease, the test accurately reports ...
