Data Science different topic’s explanation – Part-5 – Types of Probabilities

Joint Probability

Joint probability is a type of probability where more than one event can occur simultaneously. The joint probability is the probability that event A will occur at the same time as event B.

For instance, from a deck of 52 cards, the total probability of receiving a red 6 card is P(6 ∩ red) = 2/52 = 1/26, since there are two red sixes in the deck of cards – :diamonds:6 and :heart:6. You can also use the formula to calculate the total probability – P(6 ∩ red) = P(6)P(red) = 4/52 * 26/52 = 1/26.
