Genetic probability

Assume that a trait is determined by a single pair of genes where one allele is dominant and the other is recessive.
In a population, 30% of the females are pure dominant, 60% are hybrid, and 10% are pure recessive. If a pure recessive male mates with a random female and their first offspring has the dominant trait, what is the probability that the female is hybrid?
