I have tried what I feel like is everything and I am still coming up short! Please help!

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 0.6% of Americans have AIDS. The HIV-1 tests correctly diagnose the presence of HIV in 99% of the persons who have it and correctly diagnose its absence in 89.5% of the persons who don't.

Find the probability that a person whose result is positive is actually negative.
