# Naive Bayes - RapidMiner Operator Reference manual

I was reading

through the Naive Bayes Model in the RapidMiner Operator Reference (pdf) found here -http://rapidminer.com/documentation/

and had a question.

In the Naive Bayes model (page 653/990) they are calculating the maximum

calculated probability for each label value.

1. They calculate the Posterior probability of label=Yes = >9/14,

2. Value from distribution table when Outlook = sunny and label = yes (i.e.*0.223*)

I understand posterior probability 9/14, How did they calculate 0.223? How did they arrive at this value?

Please let me know.

Thanks,

Ram

114RM Data Scientistthe value from the distribution table for the case Outlook = sunny and label = yes will be calculated as 2 / 9 because there are 2 examples that fit the constraints having 9 times the occurrence of label = yes. The values in the operators manual do slightly differ because they have been computed using the Laplace option. If you disable this default parameter you should get a distribution table containing the expected values.

1Contributor IHow the laplance correction work in this case to derive 0.2333?
