Two doctors

Doctor A will determine the correct diagnosis with a probability of 93% and doctor B with a probability of 79%. Calculate the probability of proper diagnosis if both doctors diagnose the patient.

Correct result:

p =  98.53 %


q1=93%=93100=0.93 q2=79%=79100=0.79  q=q1+q2q1 q2=0.93+0.790.93 0.79=0.9853  p=100 q=100 0.9853=9853100=9853100%=98.53%
