00:00:00.700 --> 00:00:03.540 A:middle L:90%
all right, we're given to events here, a
2
00:00:03.540 --> 00:00:06.120 A:middle L:90%
B in the event that a chosen individual has a
3
00:00:06.120 --> 00:00:09.160 A:middle L:90%
height greater than six feet and be being the event
4
00:00:09.160 --> 00:00:11.759 A:middle L:90%
that a chosen subject is a basketball player, and
5
00:00:11.759 --> 00:00:16.320 A:middle L:90%
we're supposed compare these two probabilities and see which one
6
00:00:16.339 --> 00:00:19.079 A:middle L:90%
is more likely to be greater. Now let's analyze
7
00:00:19.079 --> 00:00:22.149 A:middle L:90%
the notation, see what these notations really say.
8
00:00:22.219 --> 00:00:23.929 A:middle L:90%
So on the left hand side, we have probability
9
00:00:23.929 --> 00:00:27.219 A:middle L:90%
of a given be meaning the probability that, given
10
00:00:27.219 --> 00:00:29.739 A:middle L:90%
the subject is a basketball player, they are over
11
00:00:29.739 --> 00:00:32.799 A:middle L:90%
six feet. In contrast, on the right hand
12
00:00:32.799 --> 00:00:35.509 A:middle L:90%
side, we have the probability of be given a
13
00:00:35.630 --> 00:00:38.149 A:middle L:90%
the probability that given that somebody is greater than six
14
00:00:38.149 --> 00:00:42.700 A:middle L:90%
feet tall, that they are basketball player. Let's
15
00:00:42.700 --> 00:00:44.649 A:middle L:90%
look at the left hand side first. Now,
16
00:00:44.899 --> 00:00:48.250 A:middle L:90%
if we were to assemble all basketball players ever,
17
00:00:49.140 --> 00:00:50.850 A:middle L:90%
we would expect most them to be on the taller
18
00:00:50.850 --> 00:00:53.579 A:middle L:90%
side. Perhaps may be greater than six feet,
19
00:00:54.039 --> 00:00:56.060 A:middle L:90%
however, if we look at the right hand side
20
00:00:56.259 --> 00:00:58.490 A:middle L:90%
. If we collected every person who was six feet
21
00:00:58.490 --> 00:01:00.280 A:middle L:90%
tall, not all of them, not as many
22
00:01:00.280 --> 00:01:03.259 A:middle L:90%
of them, we would expect to be basketball players
23
00:01:03.500 --> 00:01:03.829 A:middle L:90%
. Some of them might play a different sport,
24
00:01:03.829 --> 00:01:07.450 A:middle L:90%
like volleyball or something like that, where some of
25
00:01:07.450 --> 00:01:07.980 A:middle L:90%
them might just not play a sport at all.
26
00:01:08.870 --> 00:01:11.780 A:middle L:90%
Therefore, we will probably expect this left hand probability
27
00:01:11.780 --> 00:01:15.819 A:middle L:90%
be greater the probability that, given that somebody is
28
00:01:15.819 --> 00:01:18.469 A:middle L:90%
a basketball player there greater than six feet, so
29
00:01:18.469 --> 00:01:21.049 A:middle L:90%
thus the correct answer is left hand side.
