The test is 99.5% effective, which means that the test will come back negative if the HIV antibody is not present 99.5% of the time. The probability of a test coming back positive when the antibody is not present (a false positive) is 0.005.

(a) What is the probability that the ELISA comes back negative for all ﬁve people?

(b) What is the probability that the ELISA comes back positive for at least one of the ﬁve people?
