Question: problem 10 suppose a virus has infected 04 percent of...

Question details

Problem 10: Suppose a virus has infected .04 percent of students at UD. The test for the virus correctly identifies someone who is infected as infected.99 percent of the time, and falsely identifies someone who is not infected as infected (known as a false positive) .001 percent of the time. What is the probability that someone is actually infected, given that they tested positive? (Hint: make a tree with infected or not as the first stage and the test as the second.)
