    Trying to come up with the conditional probability for a problem that deals with court cases and number of appeals and reversals for a particular judge.

    Judge smith
    Total Cases 3037
    Appealed Cases 137
    Reversed Cases 12
    Prob(Appeal) .0451
    Prob(Reverse) .0040

    What I want to find out is the probability of a reversal, given an appeal.

    The 12 reversed cases are part of the 137 appealed cases but I'm not sure how I need to write and set up the problem to solve.
