How many of these women actually have breast cancer?;Create a 2x2 table for the mammogram problem.;Calculate;1. Probability of having breast cancer. p(BC).;2. Probability of having BC given the mammogram is positive. p(BC/positive mammo);3. Probability of having a positive mammogram given a person has BC.
