Suppose that at UVA, 76% of all undergraduates are in the College, 10% are in Engineering, 6% are in Commerce, 4% are in Nursing, and 4% are in Architecture. In each school, the percentage of females is as follows: 55% in the College, 24% in Engineering, 45% in Commerce, 90% in Nursing, and 35% in Architecture. If a randomly selected student is male, what is the probability that he's from the College? Probability =
