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.
