Stats+Dr.Gregory House=Tolerable<3

I’m in Sculpture Class studying for my midterm tonight when I come across this problem.

It’s about House and how he thinks no one ACTUALLY has Lupus.

So like house…

Haha.

This makes studying more fun at least,

I’m going to study a little bit more than time to work on my Sculpture piece!

    so can we just take the difference of the probabilities and will that be the correct answer?
    I wanna know the answer Please!

    And how some you have to study probability in Sculpture class?

    • Wow this post was from almost 2 years ago. Haha. I had a statistics class as well. If I remember correctly you have to find the probability that someone who has lupus will get a positive test result, the probability that someone who has lupus gets a negative result, the probability that someone who does not have lupus gets a positive result and the possibility that someone who does not have lupus gets a negative result. Also known as PPV or Positive Predictive Value which is PPV=the number of true positives over the number of true positives + the number of false positives and then that equals the number of true positives over the number of positive calls. Make any sense?
