# Why multiply word count in text with probability of the occurrence of the word in the class

My Code:

`````` prediction *=  ((counts.get(word, 0) + 1) / (sum(counts.values()) + class_count))
``````

What I expected to happen:

``````I expected this
prediction *=  ((counts.get(word, 0) + 1) / (sum(counts.values()) + class_count))
``````

What actually happened:

`````` prediction *=  text_counts.get(word) * ((counts.get(word, 0) + 1) / (sum(counts.values()) + class_count))
``````

Why the probability was multiplied with text_counts.get(word) ?
Need some help to understand this.

Hi @dash_sanjay,

That calculation is certainly not matching up with the comments in the answer. I will get it logged for review.

Thanks,
