Question

Question 2: An individual is told by his orthopedic surgeon that the surgery to repair his ACL has a probability of .17 of failing, the probability of an infection in this type of surgery is .05 and both the repair fails and an infection occur together with a probability of.02. Find the following below: A.) What is the probability that the surgery will be successful and free of infection? (Hint: Please see Lesson plan 3 part 3 for Theaddition rule for P(A or B) which is explained in Part B, as well as Demorgan's Laws which is explained in Lesson plan 3 part 4 inPart E. Both of these concepts will help with this question. Good luck!) B.) What is the probability of an infection given the surgery is successful (Hint: Please see Lesson plan 3 part 4 and see Part D as it explains Conditional Probability).
