Today we’re going to begin our discussion of probability. We’ll talk about how the addition (OR) rule, the multiplication (AND) rule, and conditional probabilities help us figure out the likelihood of sequences of events happening – from optimizing your chances of having a great night out with friends to seeing Cole Sprouse at IHop!

…'ooh-ooh'—what's 'antipareidolia' called—the 'inability' of a murderer to see the corpse…Yo

In crash course mythology, where would u find the myths in full versions online?

can we get into tutorials now?

…sidebar: M&M's white chocolates also have five colors—why is five best for statistics…I have a chemistry exam after 5 hours (FINALS!!!) but look at me… -_-

I think the p(cancer) example is the best part of this series I've heard so far. It immediately explains the importance of the field.

Very good!

Why don’t they do math?

Since you're doing a course in Arabic, can you make a Crash Course Arabic?

hi

wtf is cole

You should explain the statistics of Dungeons & Dragons in an episode of the on-again/off-again series Crash Course Mythology.

Thanks for reminding me how dumb I am.

Woah double upload XD

Can probability help us figure out who's going to be in the 2018 NBA finals?

There is a large probability that I’m going to kms during my finals

You guys post this after my exam!!!

Like less than 8 hours after it…

Finally! Math!

Thanks for explaining in terms of ice cream and Cole Sprouse, I love the Internet.

Don't Forget To Be Asking Questions.

Where are there theaters where it’s not general seating? Never seen that.

What about brown and black Skittles? You racist.

Thank you so much! this is exactly what I needed, my test is in a day!!!

I enjoy logical conclusions. Presumptions, deny lying eyes.

Yiu should make a video on English Language.

I think the p(cancer) example is the best part of this series I've heard so far. It immediately explains the importance of the field.

I wanna dump out that jar of D6's and yell, "FIREBALL!" 😡

Go scold Numberphile, You know what they say about this simple stuff ?

The probability of meeting another human is zero, population of the universe divide by the space of the universe.

My statistics class just started on probability and one of the discussion assignments is to share videos of something we are having a hard time with. I think I understand all the basic concepts in this video, so I wish the rest of this series was posted because I would have loved to have used Crash Course!

Your videos are extremely well produced and informative, thank you for this content 🙂

will you guys go over Random Variables and Probability Density functions and such?

I only disliked this because I don't like the option given when i chose to not have this one next

Excellent! Just one thing: P(A|B) does not require Event B to occur before Event A.

finally some maths

best episode yet

I was with you till the part you said you "don't want your weekend to suck" but then said "you could stream get out" I mean, which is it… sucky weekend with get out, or have a decent to good weekend? =p

Good lecture but there were too many references to American pop culture that many non-Americans can't relate to

Crash course rocks like if you agree

HELLO GUYSS!Help me to reach 14.5Ksubscriberson my channel i really appreciate those people who help & particpate to reach my GOAL✔ thanks it really means a lot🇵🇭😄😁💕Uhm… That whole Cole Sprouse thing was pretty funny not gonna lie

I do not mean to be rude but I found this very confusing for some reason…….and I have understood everything up until now

No idea who Cold Sprouts or an IHOP is. By trying to be relatable to American kids you're alienating the rest of the world

lol I had a math quiz about this today.

but what's the probability of Dylan at ihop?

Theres a number of eateries where 20% roll a mental dice each day is probably not a bad approach for modelling me.

We are learning about this in school right now

Good job!

This episode could be an entire crash course. What are the chances of there being a crash course probability?
