Hello If we say that possibility of being a murder is p(A) and having tattoos is p(B) and from usa p(C), then being a murder given you come from the states p(AC) and being a murder given you got tattoos p(AB). But do you write "the possibility of someone being a murder given he has tattoos and comes from the USA" when having tattoos and being from the states are independent events? Thanks on forehand

Okay, I can see why you are confused... There's missing a "how". What I want to know is how to write Bayes' theorem when A is conditional on both B and C, but B and C are independent events
