Table 2.

Conditional probability distributions for the example system shown in Table 1.

Likelihood of a state of coin 1 given the state of coin 2
Likelihood of a state of coin 2 given the state of coin 1
• The conditional probability describes the likelihood of a state of a given the state of B and can be related to the joint and marginal probability distributions (table 1) via Bayes’ theorem (Eqn. 2).
