Unconditional probabilities vs. Conditional probability

**Unconditional probabilities**

An independent chance that a single outcome results from a sample of possible outcomes, without reference to any other event.

P(A) = no of time of “A” occur / total no of possible outcomes

**Conditional probability (or Mariginal probability)**

Probability of an event or outcome is based on the occurrence of a previous event or outcome. Conditional probabilities are important in tests of market efficiency, where event B is some piece of public or private information that becomes available to the market at some point of time.

*Probability of A if B occurred,*

P(A│B) = Joint probability of A and B / Unconditional probability of B

= P(AB) / P(B),

where: P(B) is not equal to 0

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. See the link below for more info.

Great Blog...

I'm not entirely certain, however, I believe that marginal probability = Unconditional, as opposed to conditional...
