oil price, P(B), is 0.4. The probability of an increase in airfare given an increase in oil price, P(A|B), is 0.3. The joint probability of an increase in both oil price and airfare, P(AB), is 0.3 x 0.4 = 0.12. Hint: <span>Look out for the words "given that" or "you are told that," which will help you know that the probability is conditional. In the absence of such information, the probability will be unconditional. The letter after the | is the event that we know has definitely occurred, whereas the letter before the | is the event whose probability we are trying to calculate. <span>
