Jason inherited a piece of land from his great-uncle. Owners in the area claim that there is a 45% chance that the land has oil. Jason decides to test the land for oil. He buys a kit that claims to have an 80% accuracy rate of indicating oil in the soil. What is the probability that the land has no oil and the test shows that it has oil? 0.09 0.11 0.36 0.44

    I put in 0.80 and 0.45 in the formula but the results came up as 1.778 and none of my answer choices matches this. Can anyone help me with this?
