Within this limited event space, what is the probability of A. 7 The Axioms of Probability All axioms 1. All probabilities are between 0 and 1 0P(A)1 2. For a valid proposition A ( T under all interpretations): P(A)=1; and for a inconsistent proposition A ( F under all interpretations): P(A)=0 . 3. P(A_B)=P(A)+P(B)P(A^B) Other properties follow from these three axioms. 8 Other Properties  From the axioms, P(A_:A)=P(A)+P(:A)P(A^:A) P(T)=P(A)+P(:A)P(F) 1=P(A)+P(:A) P(:A)=1P(A)  More generally, thesumof probabilities P(X=v) is 1, for all values vthe random variable X can take: 2 4 X v2V P(X=v) 3 5=1; where V is the set of all possible values X can take. 9 Joint Probability Distribution For random variables X1 ;X2 ;:::;Xn ,  Anatomic eventis an assignment of particular values to each random variable.  Thejoint probability distribution P(X1 ;X2 ;:::;Xn ) completely species the probabilities of allatomic events.  Thus, 2 4 X (v1 ;v2 ;:::;vn )2V P(X1 =v1 ;X2 =v2 ;:::;Xn =vn ) 3 5=1; where V is a set of all possible n vectors that the vector (X1 ;X2 ;::;Xn ) can assume.. 10 Joint Probability Distribution: Example Toothache :Toothache Sum Cavity 0:040:06 P(C)=0:1 :Cavity 0:010:89 P(:C)=0:9 Sum P(T)=0:05P(:T)=0:95 P=1:0 Abbreviations: C=C av ity ,T=T oothache P(C_T)=P(C)+P(T)P(C^T) =0:1+0:050:04=0:11 P(CjT)= P(C^T) P(T) = 0:04 0:05 =0:8 P(TjC)= P(C^T) P(C) = 0:04 0:1 =0:5 In practice,
