How to find the minimum support in Apriori algorithm

aprioridata-mining

When the percentage values of support and confidence is given how can I find the minimum support in Apriori algorithm. For an example when support and confidence is given as 60% and 60% respectively what is the minimum support?

Best Solution

The support and confidence are measures to measure how interesting a rule is.

The minimum support and minimum confidence are set by the users, and are parameters of the Apriori algorithm for association rule generation. These parameters are used to exclude rules in the result that have a support or a confidence lower than the minimum support and minimum confidence respectively.

So to answer your question, when you say that: "For an example when support and confidence is given as 60% and 60% respectively what is the minimum support?" you probably mean that you have set the minimum support and confidence to 60 %.

I think that you are just confused by the terms.
