. A new disease is spreading amongst the population. Of 10,000 people, 1500 are believed to have the disease. A test for this terrible condition has just been invented, and it will detect the disease 95% of the time, and has a 8% false alarm rate.
P(have the disease | test positive)=
P(have the disease | test negative)=
p(have the disease | test positive)= 1500 *95% = 1425
out of 1500 only 1425 will test positive
p(have the disease | test negative) = 10000*8% + 1425 = 2105
Out of 10000 only 7895 will test negative.
