Conditional Probability

A conditional probability contains a restriction that may limit the sample space for a given event. For example, if the sample space is all shirt colors in your class, then the probability of red would consider the entire class. However, the probability of a red shirt given it is on a girl, would limit the sample space to only the girls in the class.

This type of probability is denoted by P(red | girl).
