Conflict in scenario assumption and solution - Conditional Probability: Fundamentals

Screen Link: https://app.dataquest.io/m/429/conditional-probability%3A-fundamentals/4/conditional-probability

Haha! Good catch.

You can reinterpret the question as “What is the probability that he was born in either December or January?”
