Baye's Theorem Calculator
Bayes’ theorem describes the probability of occurrence of an event concerning any condition. It is useful for the case of conditional probability. Bayes' formula is also known as the formula for the probability of “causes”.

How to Find a Baye's Theorem Calculator?
Conditional probability is the likelihood of the occurrence of an event, based on the knowledge of the conditions related to the event.
Bayes Formula can be given as:
P(AB)= [P(BA). P(A)] / P(B)
P(A) and P(B) are the respective probabilities of A and B events.
P(AB) is the probability of event A, given that event B occurs or has occurred.
P(BA) is the probability of event B, given that event B occurs or has occurred.
Solved Example:
Jar1 contains 4 white and 6 black balls while Jar2 contains 4 white and 3 black balls. One ball is drawn randomly from one of the jars, and was found to be black. Find the probability that it was drawn from the jar1.
Solution:
Let E_{1} be the event of choosing jar1, E_{2} the event of choosing jar2, and A be the event of drawing a black ball.
Then, P(E_{1}) = P(E_{2}) = 1/2
Also, P(AE_{1}) = P(drawing a black ball from Jar1) = 6/10 = 3/5
P(AE_{2}) = P(drawing a black ball from Jar2) = 3/7
By using Bayes’ theorem, we can know the probability of drawing a black ball from the Jar1 out of two jars,
P(E_{1 }/ A) = {P(E_{1}) × P(A / E_{1})} / {P(E_{1}) × P(A / E_{1}) + P(E_{2}) × P(A /E_{2})}
P(E_{1 }/ A) = (3/10) / (3/10) + (3/14) = 7/12
Similarly, you can use the calculator to find the unknown from Baye's theorem:

Jar1 contains 4 white and 6 black balls while Jar2 contains 4 white and 3 black balls. One ball is drawn randomly from one of the jars and was found to be black. Find the probability that it was drawn from the jar1.

A man speaks the lie 2 out of 3 times. He reported that the number obtained is a five after throwing a dice. What is the probability that the number obtained is not a five?
