Thanks.
Nice theorem, many uses, such as it can be used to analyse numerically the discriminatory enforcement behaviour against one group of people over another group.

Hayes Theorem and policing
Definition: a theorem describing how the conditional probability of each of a set of possible causes for a given observed outcome can be computed from knowledge of the probability of each cause and the conditional probability of the outcome of each cause.

Can someone calculate the chance of a free book being voted hot because it is free?

splender may understand (and is excluded from above XD) but does everyone else really need a book on this topic. If yes, my admiration for hotukdeals members is immense
Khan Academy has some free information regarding this >

This Theorem could be used to solve whether or not Boz's book deals are hotter than others' ebook deals and whether there is big enough gap to lead to questions : When a deal is free, it is voted hot, but does this mean deal is hot because it is free? What's the probability a deal is hot given that it is free? What's the probability a deal is hot given that it is free and posted by Boz?

I am not sure about the relative probability of the heat level, but I thought that this freebie looked sufficiently interesting to add to my kindle collection.
I thought others might enjoy it or find it useful.

But what if Boz is a false-positive? Would it not skew the results?
Free or not for Free that is the question !
Thanks, bought and voted hot.

confidence increases with further theorems and analyses
