Sum

Two hundred patients who had either Eye surgery or Throat surgery were asked whether they were satisfied or unsatisfied regarding the result of their surgery

The follwoing table summarizes their response:

Surgery Satisfied Unsatisfied Total
Throat 70 25 95
Eye 90 15 105
Total 160 40 200

If one person from the 200 patients is selected at random, determine the probability that person was unsatisfied given that the person had eye surgery

Solution

Let event C: The patient was unsatisfied,

event D: The patient had a eye surgery.

Given, n(S) = 200

n(C ∩ D) = 15

∴ P(C ∩ D) = `("n"("C" ∩ "D"))/("n"("S")) = 15/200`

n(D) = 105

∴  P(D) = `105/200`

Required probability = `"P"("C"/"D")`

= `("P"("C" ∩ "D"))/("P"("D"))`

= `((15/200))/((105/200))`

= `15/105`

= `1/7`
