A Beautiful Probability Theorem

We all know that, given two events A and B, the probability of the union A U B is given by the formula P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B) - P( AB) where AB represents the intersection of A and B. Most of us even know that

P(A U B U C) = P(A) + P(B) + P(C) - { P(AB) + P(AC) + P(BC) } + P(ABC)

In particular, if the events are independent, it becomes:

1 - P(A U B U C) = 1 - { P(A) + P(B) +…

The Fundamental Statistics Theorem Revisited

In this article, we revisit the most fundamental statistics theorem, talking in layman terms. We investigate a special but interesting and useful case, which is not discussed in textbooks, data camps, or data science classes. This article is part of a series about off-the-beaten-path data science and mathematics, offering a fresh, original and simple perspective on a number of topics. Previous articles in this series can be found…
