Does this make sense? My notes are contradicting each other and it is pissing me off......

P(Not A n B) = P(B) - P(A n B) ????????

The 'Not A' is basically the compliment of A, I just don't know how to do an A with a line on top

I am bare confused.
That does make sense.

If you're ever confused, consider two dice.

Let A be 'roll a 3 on dice 1' with probability 1/6, ao NOT A = 5/6.

Let B be 'roll an even on dice 2) with prob 1/2.

Then P(NOT A n B) = 5/6*1/2 = 5/12.

P(B)-P(AnB) = 1/2 - 1/2*1/6 = 5/12.

[for completeness, let event A have probability a (so NOT A has prob (1-a)) and event B have probability b. Then you can show LHS = RHS]
2. Ugh, equations

Merehay Lane is the name of the road I live on at home. Dunno, just sort of fits.

You can talk to me however you like, behbeh.
9. His real surname is too ****ing surreal, as I've told him on multiple occasions.
