    A certain disease occurs in 35% of the population. A test for the disease is fairly accurate: it misclassifies people with the disease as healthy 6% of the time and reports that a healthy person is diseased just 7% of the time. Suppose that a person tests positive for the disease. Compute the probability that the person does indeed have the disease. Round your answer to two decimal places.
