Probability of malaria

A survey carried out at a certain hospital indicates that the probability that a patient tested positive for malaria is 0.6. What is the probability that two patients selected at random
(i) one is negative while the other tested positive?
(i) both patients tested positive.

Result

p1 =  0.48
p2 =  0.36

Solution:

p=0.6  C1(2)=(21)=2!1!(21)!=21=2  p1=(21) p (1p)=2 0.6 (10.6)=1225=0.48p=0.6 \ \\ \ \\ C_{{ 1}}(2)=\dbinom{ 2}{ 1}=\dfrac{ 2! }{ 1!(2-1)!}=\dfrac{ 2 } { 1 }=2 \ \\ \ \\ p_{1}={ { 2 } \choose 1 } \cdot \ p \cdot \ (1-p)=2 \cdot \ 0.6 \cdot \ (1-0.6)=\dfrac{ 12 }{ 25 }=0.48
p2=p2=0.62=925=0.36p_{2}=p^2=0.6^2=\dfrac{ 9 }{ 25 }=0.36



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
