# Probability - Bayes' Theorem

The Question is:

An estimated 8% of men and O.5% of women are colorblind. If a colorblind person is selected at random, what is the probability that the person is a man? (Assume that men and women occur in equal numbers)

Now if we have to solve using Bayes' Theorem, how are we supposed to set the problem up and represent them as variables?
