entered the population. At a citizens meeting in Anytown the voters demand that the Mayor do

something immediately to protect the citizens from this disease. The Mayor fearing a loss in

popularity responds with a plan to test every citizen for the disease and then to execute those

who test positive and cremate the remains. The doctors in Anytown have made a public

statement that while the test for the disease is 98% accurate it does have a false positive rate of 6%. Further, Anytown epidemiologists have estimated the disease to be present in only 1 in

1000 Anytown citizens. If a citizen of Anytown tests positive, what is the true probability they

actually have the disease?
