Prison Population. For a recent year, 0.99 of the incarcerated population is adults and 0.07 of the incarcerated are female. If an incarcerated person is selected at random, find the probability that the person is a female given that the person is an adult.
I know the answer is 0.071 but I need to find out how to solve it. What is the equation?
