MATH! :(

Yesterday, at a local restaurant, 60% of the customers ordered a burger.
If 42% of the customers ordered a burger and fries, what is the probability that a customer who ordered a burger also ordered fries?
If 15% of the customers ordered a burger and onion rings, what is the probability that a customer ordered onion rings given that he/she ordered a burger?

  • MATH! :( Conditional Probability -

    The conditional probability of event A happening given B is given by
    P(A|B) = P(A∩B)/P(B)

    In the example,
    B=customers ordered burgers
    P(B)=0.60
    F=customers ordered Fries
    P(B∩F)=0.42
    So probability of ordering fries given the customer ordered a burger is
    P(F|B)=P(B∩F)/P(B)=0.42/0.6=0.7
    and similarly
    R=customers ordered onion Rings
    P(B∩R)=0.15
    What is
    P(R|B)?
