OFFERING REWARD

Post by Nelseru on 7/6/2015, 4:27 pm

I am desperate so I am offering a reward for the solution of this statistics problem

"A disease has an incidence rate of 4 per 1000 in the general population.  The false negative rate of a test for this disease is 6% and the false positive rate is 2%.  If a person receives a positive test result, what is the probability the person actually suffers from the disease?  (Round your answer to four decimal places.)"

Answers must be in the form the question asks (Round your answer to four decimal places.)


I am willing to offer one of 3 rewards

All of the contents of this chest



A $10 donation in your name

Or my own sword Mythroden



The only limitation is that it is solved by 4:00PM EST 7/8/2015
If you need to contact me my skype is Nelseru but it should show up as ZeroExaulted

As a graduate student who works with complicated calculus everyday I am going to feel embarrassed if I get this wrong...also keep in mind I haven't done statistics in 4 or 5 years...but I got .00024 as the probability! Hope it helps

Man you know when you are desperate when you are offering money to do your Stats work. I guess my powerpoint lectures didn't help.
