A new drug treatment is found to increase the survival rate from a certain disease from 50% for those not given the treatment to 75% for those given the treatment. Of a group of 100 patients suffering from the disease, 10 were chosen at random to undergo the treatment.(i) What is the probability that a randomly chosen patient from the group of 100 was given the treatment and survived?(ii) What is the probability that a patient who survived was given the treatment?(iii) What is the probability that a patient who did not survive was given the treatment?

3. chance that they're given the treatment (10/100) x 75% of survival

OR (+)

the chance that they're not given the treatment which is 90/100 x 50% chance of survival
