Jason inherited a piece of land from his great-uncle. Owners in the area claim that there is a 45% chance that the land has oil. Jason decides to test the land for oil. He buys a kit that claims to have an 80% accuracy rate of indicating oil in the soil. If the test predicts that there is no oil, what is the probability after the test that the land has oil?

P(oil)= 0.45

P(accurate kit)=0.8

P(oil found)= P(oil & kit not accurate)= 0.45*0.2= 0.09

so probability that there will be oil after the test= 9 %...........................................please best my answer
