1 Conditional Probability Worksheet EXAMPLE 4. Drug Testing and Conditional Probability Suppose that a company claims it has a test that is 95% effective in determining whether an athlete is using a steroid. That is, if an athlete is using a steroid, the test will be positive 95% of the time. In the case of a negative result, the company says its test is 97% accurate. That is, even if an athlete is not using steroids, it is possible that the test will be positive in 3% of the cases. Such an occurrence is called a false positive. Suppose this test is given to a group of athletes in which 10% of the athletes are using steroids. What is the probability that a randomly chosen athlete actually uses steroids, given that the athlete's test is positive? Solution Let S be the event that an athlete uses steroids and let T be the event that the test is positive. Then the probability we wish to determine is P S T. Using the conditional probability formula, we have P S T P S T PT A tree diagram, shown at the left, can be used to calculate this probability Exercises 36, compute the conditional probabilities P A B and P B A 3. P A 0.7, P B 0.4, P A B P A 0.45, P B 0.8, P A B P A 0.61, P B 0.18, P A B P A 0.2, P B 0.5, P A B 0.2 Exercises 710, use the data in the table below, which shows the employment status of individuals in a particular town by age group. Age Group Fulltime Parttime Unemployed If a person in this town is selected at random, find the probability that the individual is employed parttime, given that he or she is between the ages of 35 and 49.
2 8. If a person in the town is randomly selected, what is the probability that the individual is unemployed, given that he or she is over 50 years old? 9. A person from the town is randomly selected; what is the probability that the individual is employed fulltime, given that he or she is between 18 and 49 years of age? 10. A person from the town is randomly selected; what is the probability that the individual is employed parttime, given that he or she is at least 35 years old? Exercises 1114, use the data in the following table, which shows the results of a survey of 2000 gamers about their favorite home video game systems, organized by age group. If a survey participant is selected at random, determine the probability of each of the following. Sony PlayStation 2 Microsoft Xbox Nintendo GameCube Sega Dreamcast The participant prefers the Sony PlayStation 2 system. 12. The participant prefers the Microsoft Xbox, given that the person is between the age of 13 and The participant prefers Nintendo GameCube, given that the person is between the ages of 13 and The participant is under 12 years of age, given that the person prefers the Sega Dreamcast machine. 15.

In Exercises 2326, a snacksize bag of M&Ms candies is opened. Inside, there are 12 red candies, 12 blue, 7 green, 13 brown, 3 orange, and 10 yellow. Three candies are pulled from the bag in succession, without replacement. 23. Determine the probability that the first candy drawn is blue, the second is red, and the third is green. 24. Determine the probability that the first candy drawn is brown, the second is orange, and the third is yellow. 25. What is the probability that the first two candies drawn are green and the third is red? 26. What is the probability that the first candy drawn is orange, the second is blue, and the third is orange? In Exercises 2730, three cards are dealt from a shuffled standard deck of playing cards. 27. Find the probability that the first card dealt is red, the second is black, and the third is red. 28. Find the probability that the first two cards dealt are clubs and the third is a spade. 29. What is the probability that the three cards dealt are, in order, an ace, a face card, and an 8? (A face card is a jack, queen, or king.) 30. What is the probability that the three cards dealt are, in order, a red card, a club, and another red card? In Exercises 3134, the probability that a student enrolled at a local high school will be absent on a particular day is 0.04, assuming that the student was in attendance the previous school day. However, if a student is absent, the probability that he or she will be absent again the following day is For each exercise, assume that the student was in attendance the previous day. 31. What is the probability that a student will be absent three days in a row? 32. What is the probability that a student will be absent two days in a row, but then show up on the third day? 33.

A single die is rolled and then rolled a second time Numbered balls are pulled from a bin onebyone to determine the winning lottery numbers. 37. Numbers are written on slips of paper in a hat; one person pulls out a slip of paper without replacing it, then a second person pulls out a slip of paper. 38.

A pharmaceutical company has developed a test for a scarce disease that is present in 0.5% of the population.

When used together, the ELISA and Western Blot tests for HIV are more than 99% accurate in determining a positive result. The chance of a false positive is between 1 and 5 for every 100,000 tests. If we assume a 99% accuracy rate for correctly identifying positive results and 5/100,000 false positives, find the probability that someone who tests positive has HIV. (The Centers for Disease Control and Preventi6n estimate that about 0.3% of U.S. residents are infected with HIV.)
