Suppose that for the general population, 1 in 5000 people carries the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). A test for the presence oh HIV yields either a positive (+) or negative (-) response. Suppose the test gives the correct answer 99% of the time. What is P[-|H], the conditional probability that a person test negative given the person does have the HIV? What is P[H|+], the conditional probability that a random chosen person has the HIV given that the person tests positive?
