Conditional Probability Density
An individual whose level of exposure to a certain pathogen is x will contact the disease caused by this pathogen with probability P (x). (Regard x as a continuous variable.)
If the exposure level of a randomly chosen member of the population has probability density
function f , determine the conditional probability density of the exposure level of that member,
given that he or she:
(a) has the disease.
(b) does not have the disease.
(c) Show that, if P (x) is increasing in x, then the ratio of the conditional density in part
(a) to the conditional density in part (b) also increases in x.
