Advice to Candidates

You must ensure that your answers to parts of questions are clearly labelled.

You must show sufficient working to make your methods clear to the Examiner. Answers

without working may gain no credit.

1. A disease is known to be present in 2% of a population. A test is developed to help determine

whether or not someone has the disease.

Given that a person has the disease, the test is positive with probability 0.95.

Given that a person does not have the disease, the test is positive with probability 0.03.

(3)

A person is selected at random from the population and tested for this disease.

(3)

A doctor randomly selects a person from the population and tests him for the disease. Given that

the test is positive,

(c) find the probability that he does not have the disease.

(2)

(d) Comment on the usefulness of this test.

2. In a factory, machines A, B and C are all producing metal rods of the same length. Machine A

produces 35% of the rods, machine B produces 25% and the rest are produced by machine C. Of

their production of rods, machines A, B and C produce 3%, 6% and 5% defective rods

respectively.

(3)

(b) Find the probability that a randomly selected rod is

(ii) is defective.

(5)

(c) Given that a randomly selected rod is defective, find the probability that it was produced by

machine C.
