Conditional Probability

More often, the probability of an event can be changed by knowing the outcome of a related event. For example, if we are to choose a student at random from all college students in the United States, then the chance of selecting a male student is not very low. But if we are to choose a male student whose GPA is 4.00, the chance of selection must be revised downward. Such a probability is called conditional probability.
