Question details

A medical clinic is giving a test for a very rare disease called Pythonitis. In the general population only 1 in 100,000 people have the disease. The test is fairly accurate but not perfect. Of healthy people who do not have the disease, 99% of them will test negative and 1% of them will incorrectly test positive if they take the test. of people who actually have Pythonitis, 99% of them will test positive and 1% will incorrectly test negative. A random person has been given the test and the test came back as positive for Pythonitis. What is the probability this person actually has Pythonitis?
