Hello everybody, I'm a problem to solve a conditional probability value. Let's we know the value of P(B|A) and P(B|C) from three sample sets. Without knowing the P(A,C) can someone give me a solution for getting the value of P(C|A).

Hey sempoi.

Have you tried using Bayes Theorem to see if you can make a direct substitution? What assumptions are you making about the relationships between events A, B, and C?
