There are four balls in a hat: a blue one, a white one, and two red ones. Now I draw simultaneously two balls, look at them, and announce that at least one of them is red.
What is the chance that the other is red as well?

This is a Baye's Theorem example.
Probability of B occurring when A is true.
Here is a similar example. Let's say there is a disease that exists in 1% of the population. There is a test for this disease that is 99% accurate (i.e. it gives a false reading 1% of the time).
If a random person tests positive for the disease, what is the probability that they have the disease?
