Total| 531| 436| 95| Z|

3. Now, using the completed contingency table, select the statements from the following list that are true.   Note: a statement is true only if the value you calculated from the completed contingency table, when rounded to the same number of decimal places as in the statement, is the same as the value in the statement.  | | The probability that a participant opposed abortion was 46.3%. P(O)| | | The probability a participant was female and supported abortion was 0.25. (F n S)| | | The probability that a participant was P(male or undecided) about the issue of abortion was 51.4%.| P| | Gender and attitudes towards abortion are independent. [VERY UNSURE]| | | Of those surveyed who supported abortion, 42.8% were male.| 6 points

Question 8
1. To ascertain the effectiveness of a new diagnostic test for diabetes, a study was undertaken involving 883 participants, some of whom are independently known to actually have diabetes.  A positive test result would indicate the presence of diabetes (with a negative test result indicating the absence of diabetes).  The data collected to assess the effectiveness of this new test identified: * 301 participants known to actually have diabetes.

* 24 participants who actually knew they had diabetes and where the test result was negative. * 535 participants with a negative test result.
A participant from the study is chosen at random.  What is the probability the participant indicates a positive test result given they do not actually have diabetes? (3 decimal places)
