    Furthermore, n P(B) = n P(Aj ∩ B) = j=1 P(B | Aj )P(Aj ), provided P(Aj ) > 0 for all j. j=1 The concept of partition is defined similarly for countably infinite many events, and the probability P(B) is expressed likewise. In the sequel, by writing j = 1, 2, . . and j we mean to include both cases: Finitely many indices and countably infinitely many indices. Thus, we have the following result. 45 46 CHAPTER 2 The concept of probability and basic results Theorem 4 (Total Probability Theorem). Let {A1 , A2 , .
