## Introduction to Law of Total Probability Calculator

The law of total probability is a fundamental rule relating marginal probabilities to conditional probabilities. It states that the total probability of an event A is the sum of the probabilities of Aoccurring given each event Bn, multiplied by the probability of each Bn occurring, where Bnare mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive events.

## Parameter usage:

• `...probabilities`= An array representing the probabilities P(A∣Bn)P(Bn) for each n

## Output:

• `total probability`= P(A), which is the total probability of event A

## Data validation

Each individual probability must be a value between 0 and 1, and the total sum must not exceed 1.

## Practical Applications

This rule is widely used in probability and statistics, risk assessment, decision making processes, and various fields such as finance, health sciences, and engineering.

## Summary

This calculator applies the law of total probability to determine the combined likelihood of an event based on conditional probabilities and their respective probabilities of occurrence.
