How do I find the normalization constant? I've used variable elimination to calculate a conditional probability, and the textbook says the result is: a(.0003699, .001717)= (.1772, .8228) and a is the normalization constant. So how do I find a?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as you can see, .1772 + .8228 = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I'm pretty hazy on probability, but maybe a*.0003699 + a*.001717 = 1
