Question: About 8 women in 100 000 have cervical cancer C so

About 8 women in 100,000 have cervical cancer (C), so P(C) = 0.00008 and P(no C) = 0.99992. The chance that a Pap smear will incorrectly indicate that a woman without cervical cancer has cervical cancer is 0.03. Therefore,
P(test pos | no C) = 0.03
What is the probability that a randomly chosen women who has this test will both be free of cervical cancer and test positive for cervical cancer (a false positive)?
