It figures that if the test results are positive, there is an 80% chance the demand will be high and the if the test results are negative, there is a 10% chance the demand will be high. If the chances of a positive test result for Whyth are 70%, what is the probability of high demand?

2. If high demand is worth $30 million (NPV) and low demand worth $-10 million, how much is the project worth? If the test results are negative, the project will not be continued, causing a loss of $1 million.
