Expert Answer

Step 1

Given incidence of urinary tract infections = 13.32%
Nitride test for urinary tract infections sensitivity = 26.7%
NItride test for urinary tract infections specificity = 93.3%

The total women with urinary tract infections among 100,000 women = 13320.
The total women without urinary tract infection among 100,000 women = 86680

The total women with urinary infection and test positive = 13320*0.267 = 3556.44
The total women wth urinary nifection and test negative = 13320 - 3556.44 = 9763.56

The total women without Urinary infection and test negative = 86680*0.933 = 80872.44
The total women without Urinary infection and test positive = 86680 - 80872.44 = 5807.56

All the following calculated values are shown in table form below

Step 2

From the below table
Probability of  being with Urinary tract infection given that test is positive P(With Infection | Test positive) = 3556.44/9364
Probability of being without Urinary tract infection given that test is positive P( Without Infection | Test positive) = 5807.56/9364

Estimated positive predictive value is nothing but the probability of being with Urinary tract infection given that test is positive
P(With Infection | Test positive)  = 3556.44/9364 =  0.379799 = 0.3798 (rounding to four decimal points)

Step 3

From the below table
Probability of  being with Urinary tract infection given that test is negative P(With Infection | Test negative) = 9763.56/90636
Probability of being without Urinary tract infection given that test is negative P( Without Infection | Test negative) = 80872....
