# Cancer testing The probability that a man with prostate cancer will test positive with the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test is 0.91. If 500 men with prostate cancer are tested, how many would we expect to test positive?

To determine

To calculate: The men expected to test positive if the probability for which a man with prostate cancer has a test positive with the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test is 0.91 and 500 men with prostate cancer are tested.

Explanation

Given Information:

The probability for which a man with prostate cancer has a test positive with the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test is 0.91 and 500 men with prostate cancer are tested.

Calculation:

The probability of positive test is 0.91. So, Pr(Positive test)=0
