Dolon Web Security Consultants requires all job applicants to submit to a test for illegal drugs. If the applicant has used illegal drugs, the test has a 90 percent chance of a positive result. If the applicant has not used illegal drugs, the test has an 85 percent chance of a negative result. Actually, 4 percent of the job applicants have used illegal drugs. If an applicant has a positive test, what is the probability that he or she has actually used illegal drugs? Hint: Make a 2 × 2 contingency table of frequencies, assuming 500 job applicants.
