    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]
