A pregnancy test kit is 98.5% accurate for true positive result, i.e. the result is positive when the tester is actually pregnant. If she is not pregnant, however, it may yield a 0.8% false positive. Suppose a woman using this pregnancy kit is 60% at risk of being pregnant.
Not sure about her first test which turned out to be negative, the woman decides to take the test again. This second test, however, turns out to be positive. Assuming the two test are independent, find the probability that she is actually pregnant Ans: Please Help
Now she is so confused whether or not she is pregnant. So she take the tests n more times and the results for these n more tests are all positive. Find the minimum value for n so that she can be at least 99.99% sure of pregnancy, assuming all test are independent. Ans: Please Help
