background image For each causal claim, describe a randomized prospective, and retrospective study that would test it. ● Eating a bag of potato chips every day leads to weight gain. ● Smoking marijuana causes short­term memory loss. ● Shaving causes increased hair growth. ● Going to church makes you a better person. Ways of talking ● Informal/common vs. precise Precise ● What is the probability of drawing an ace from a standard deck of playing cards? 4/52 (or 1/13) ● What is the probability of rolling an 8 with two six­sided dice? 5/36 Rule 1: Negation ● Probability an event will not occur is 1 minus probability that it will. ● Pr(~h)=1­Pr(h) Rule 2: Conjunction ● Probability of two independent events is the product of their individual probabilities. ● Pr(h1 & h2)=Pr(h1)*(h2) ● Probability of drawing an ace and (with replacement) drawing an ace again is 1/13*1/13;  which is 1/169. Independence ● Two events are independent when the occurrence of one does not influence the  probability of the occurrence of the other. Dependent
background image ● If we draw an ace, reshuffle without replacing it, and draw another ace, then events are  dependent. ● What is the probability of drawing the second ace? ○ Probability of drawing an ace on the second draw is 3/51. ● Probability of drawing two aces this way is 1/13*3/51. ● To extend rule 2 to dependent events we need to address conditional probability. ● Conditional probability is the probability of one event occurring given that another has  occurred. ● Probability of H2 given H1 is called the conditional probability of h2 on h1 and is  symbolized Pr(h2Ih1) Rule 2G: Conjunction in general ● Given two events the probability of their both occurring is the probability of the first  times that of the second given that the first has occurred. Pr(h1&h2)=Pr(h1)*Pr(h2Ih1)
