Example Suppose that two doctors test all patients coming into a blood  donation center for anemia.  Suppose that the first doctor  diagnoses 10% of all patients as positive, the second doctor  diagnoses 17% of all the patients as positive, and both doctors  diagnose 8% of all patients as positive.  What is the  conditional probability that the second doctor makes a  positive diagnosis of anemia given that the first doctor makes  a negative diagnosis?
Conditional Probability Reason based on partial information Conditional probability of A given B P ( A | B )
