A new test has been devised for detecting a particular type of cancer. If the test is applied to a person who has this type of cancer, the probability that the person will have a positive reaction is 0.95 and the probability that the person will have a negative reaction is 0.05. If the test is applied to a person who does not have this type of cancer, the probability that the person will have a positive reaction is 0.05 and the probability that the person will have a negative reaction is 0.95. Suppose that in the general population, one person out of every 10000 people has this type of cancer. If a person selected at random has a positive reaction to the test, what is the probability that the person has this type of cancer? pCc)P(+ic~,) Pm \>(+[c) .3. 95¢ > poi-Ia“) H («3128 ‘ :2 C 2 . 3 ' ﬂ— K 0-6.?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
