Answer to Question #210 in Statistics and Probability for benny
Suppose candidate A receives 54% of the entire vote, but only 48% of the female vote. A voter is selected at random for an interview. What is the probability that the voter is a woman who voted for candidate A?
You need to find a percentage, which is formed by men and women from the total number of voters. Then the percentage of women needs to be multiplied by 0.48. In this way you will obtain the desired probability.
