1

## What is the probability that event A occurs?

### P(A)

2

## What is the probability that A OR B happens?

### P(A) + P(B), P(A+B), P(AUB)

3

## What is the probability that event A AND B occur?

### P(A*B), P(AB), P(A∩B)

4

## What does mutually exclusive events mean?

###
That A and B cannot occur at the same time. E.g. Male is pregnant.

P(A∩B) = 0

5

## What does independent events mean?

### Occurrence of A does not affect the occurrence of B. First patient is male, second patient is a woman.

6

## What does conditional probability mean?

###
Probability of A given that B has occurred. P(AIB)

E.g. probability that a patient has a headache when having fever

7

## What is the risk of illness if risk factor is present?

###
a / a+b

Having disease with risk factor / having disease and not having disease with risk factor

8

## Risk of having illness when no risk factor is resent

###
c / c+d

Having disease without risk factor/ having disease and not having disease without risk factor

9

## What is the risk ratio/ relative risk?

###
Risk ratio is the probability of an event occurring if a risk factor is present to the probability of an event occurring if a risk factor is not present.

a*(c+d) / c*(a+b)

10

## What does odds mean?

###
Odds is how many times the probability of an event occurring is greater than not occurring.

O = P(A) / 1 - P(A)

11

## What is the odds of having an illness if the risk factor is present?

### a/b

12

## What is the odds of having an illness if the risk factor is not present?

### c/d
