This is a relatively easy one from a book i just read so I cant take credit for it:

1% of women get breast cancer. 80% of women who get a positive mamogram result actually have breast cancer. 10% of women who get a negative mamogram result actually have breast cancer.

1)Jane has a positive mamogram result, what is the probability that she has cancer?

2)Mary has a negative mamogram result, what is the probability that she has cancer?
