P(O|R)

Step-by-step explanation:

The conditional probability notation of two events A and B can be written as either P(A|B) or P(B|A).

The ‘|’ sign is read as ‘given’. So, P(A|B) is read as the probability of event A given event B which implies that it is the probability that event A will occur given that event B has already occurred.

In the question,

Event R = Person lives in the city of Raleigh

Event O = Person is over 50 years old

The statement says, ‘given that the person lives in Raleigh’ which means that event R has already occurred and we need to find the probability of event O (the randomly chosen person is over 50 years old).

Hence, this statement can be given in conditional probability notation as

P(O|R)
